Austin Peay State University to host 8th Annual Spring Dance Concert

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Last fall, Marcus Hayes, Austin Peay State University associate professor of dance, traveled to Colombia to study that country’s folk dances.

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.

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.
