UTEP Dance recently traveled to West Texas A&M University for the South Central regional conference of the American College Dance Association. Two works, Behind the Badge, choreographed by senior Kristal Nazario Nance and Keren, choreographed by former faculty member, Anne Bishop were presented for adjudication. Senior Kimmy Morris presented her new work, After our Denouement, in the Informal concert series. Each of these pieces was crafted and danced beautifully, showcasing the depth and talent in our UTEP Dance Program. Twenty five UTEP students participated in 4 days of non-stop classes and performances, and we've returned inspired and pumped for future dancing! Congratulations to all and many thanks to Desert Dance for support!
