Dance Department Performances

The Belhaven dance department is thrilled to present numerous dance concerts involving varied styles including classical ballet to contemporary modern works.  These unique and original dances choreographed by inspired and creative members of our dance faculty, seasoned guest artists and students studying dance choreography display an array of artistic expressions.  For this series, I invite you to our spacious dance studio theatre located in the Bitsy Irby Visual Arts and Dance Center and the Concert Hall located at the Center for the Arts.
