HPU to Host ‘Faculty Dance Performance,’ Panel Discussion for Community

08.27.2013

Cara Hagan, HPU Dance, High Point UniversityHIGH POINT, N.C., Aug. 27, 2013 – The High Point University dance minor program will present an evening of professional dance works as part of the annual Faculty Dance Performance and Panel. The event will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 6 in the Pauline Theatre of the Hayworth Fine Arts Center; it is free and open to the public. No tickets are required.

The performance will feature a number of contemporary dance works that speak to a broad range of themes. Works will be performed by Cara Hagan, director of the dance minor program; Lindsey Howie, adjunct professor of dance in the Department of Theatre; and Melissa Pihos, adjunct professor of dance in the School of Education.

Hagan says she and the other faculty participating in the show hope to give the High Point community a new perspective on dance and the recent development of the dance minor program at HPU.

“I think this performance will give the HPU community a chance to see that dance is much more than what many of us see on television, that it is about responding creatively to societal and personal issues,” says Hagan. “I couldn’t be more excited to introduce these artists as new members of the HPU dance family.”

A panel discussion and Q-and-A session will follow the performance. The discussion will focus on the growing presence of dance on campus and its place in a liberal arts education.
