2023-2024, the School of Dance celebrates the anniversary of 90 years of dance on campus, 60 years of professional degree programs, and 20 years as the home to the Maggie Allessee National Center for Choreography (MANCC).
In honor of this anniversary, the school is planning a year-long celebration to highlight the accomplishments of alumni and current students; faculty and staff who have contributed to our growth along the way; and the numerous supporters who have helped and continue to ensure that we can “Do it with Love.”
We want to be sure we have your most recent accomplishments. Please take a few minutes to fill out the Alumni Update Form and let us know what you have been up to. Would you like to lead a class, present a panel, speak to students? Fill out the interest form and share how you would like to get involved.
