For one day, regional high school dance students converge at Brenau University's Gainesville campus to learn dance from faculty and outside professionals, see work the current students are producing and learn about the educational opportunities at Brenau.
Vincas Greene, the dance department chair at Brenau, said the free event's main focus is providing a great experience for those who attend. This year the program's enrollment grew to over 70 students from last year's 50.
"It's extremely essential to have (our) students there," said Casandra Alvarado, a visiting assistant professor of dance at Brenau. "Whenever I was looking for colleges when I was younger, It's kind of nerve racking just talking to faculty and adults. Our students are more on their age level and can really talk to them about what the college dance experience is really like."
