Send the WKU Dance Program to ACDA!

WE ARE 'CREATING THINKING ARTISTS'! 

The American College Dance Association is a nationally recognized festival within collegiate dance programs, and the WKU Dance Program will participate in the South Region festival  March 14 –  17, 2020, in Lexington, Ky. The festival includes adjudicated dance concerts, daily master classes, presentations, and informal concerts.

This esteemed festival provides many opportunities for creative activity for dancers and faculty that support the WKU Dance Program’s mission of “Creating Thinking Artists.”  Students will take more than five master technique and lecture classes from educators and guests across the nation! WKU dancers will perform in faculty-choreographed and student-choreographed adjudicated concerts, and they will also perform in an informal concert.

Presenting choreographic performance work at ACDA allows students to be adjudicated by a committee of dancers in the field, both in professional performance and education. Their evaluation provides recognition and crucial educational information and feedback for young artists. This large event also allows our students to make connections and experience networking opportunities in the very competitive field of dance. All of these experiences enhance the growth in a dancer’s creative process as well as provide educational evidence to the department, college, and university!

The largest number of WKU dancers are attending ACDA in program history! 24 dancers and 4 faculty will head to ACDA! 


Costs associated with ACDA per dancer:
Deposit: $50
Registration: $140
Partial Housing: $250
Adjudication Fee: $150
Food: $200                                                                  

Make a gift today to ensure our students can attend this wonderful opportunity to enhance their classroom learning!

All donations that exceed this project's goal will help support future scholarships, guest artists, and master classes for the dancers of the WKU Dance Program!  All donations are tax deductible. The WKU Dance Program will receive 100% of the proceeds.
