Webster University Dance Students to Perform at the National College Dance Festival
Webster University dance students were recently recognized for their dance, “Union,” by the American College Dance Festival Association. "Union," choreographed by Iyun Harrison, has been selected for the National College Dance Festival. The students will be performing at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. in late May.
The National College Dance Festival, sponsored by the American College Dance Festival Association, showcases dances selected by nationally recognized adjudicators at each of the ten regional conferences. Selections are based on outstanding artistic excellence and merit. Since the presentation of the first National Festival in 1981, the primary objective of the Festival has been to highlight, on the national level, the outstanding quality of choreography and performance that is being created on college and university campuses. The National Festival brings together hundreds of students and faculty from approximately 30 colleges and universities from around the country for three days of gala performances. The National Festival is a biennial event.
