Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN - For the last few weeks, whenever Austin Peay State University assistant professor of dance Marcus Hayes turns on his computer in the morning, he finds several emails waiting in his inbox with the subject line, “ACDFA.”

The acronym stands for “The American College Dance Festival Association,” and the emails are from those who attended this year’s central region competition at Wichita State University in Kansas and were mesmerized by the works the APSU Area of Dance performed.

APSU dance students Kevin Loveland and Rafael Tillery perform in a piece titled “By a Thread,” choreographed by APSU assistant professor of dance Marcus Hayes.

APSU spring dance concert showcases budding talents

 

There is one more show remaining in the APSU Spring Dance Concert at 2pm Sunday, Be sure to catch it!

The student performers are incredibly graceful as they weave lithely back and forth across the stage in intricate patterns dictated by the music, and the joy in their souls.
