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!

Austin Peay State University’s Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts and the Theatre and Dance Department are currently holding their 4th annual Spring Dance Concert. The program directed by Marcus Hayes features 13 works choreographed by the incredibly talented Dance Faculty at APSU, and their students.

I described last summer’s dance concert as poetry in form and motion, and I stand by that description with the spring program. 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.
