Alumni will teach and attend workshops, performances and a symposium sponsored by the Department of Dance and Theatre.

Cushman will present her award winning choreography with performances by current dance majors and returning alumni Jessica Thomas ('09), Taryn Tompkins ('10), Tyler Patterson ('12) and faculty members Amiti Perry ('98), Mary Lynn Babcock ('75, '86 M.A.) and Teresa Cooper ('76, '88 M.A.). Renowned dance educator and choreographer Daniel Lewis will speak at the symposium April 26.

The celebration comes as the dance department prepares to leave its long-time home, Stovall Hall, as construction begins on the new University Union. The dance department is asking alumni to share their memories and pictures of Stovall Hall by sending them to amiti.perry@unt.edu.

"Celebrating the Power of Dance" Faculty Dance Concert will be held at 8 p.m. April 25-26, 7 p.m. April 27 and 2 p.m. April 28 at the University Theatre. Get ticket information.
