Cynthia Newland, Associate Professor of Dance and Chair of the Dance Department said, “I am looking forward to our department offering the University and community the occasion to experience high quality art created by artists who continue to make an impact in secular and sacred arenas. Our students are blessed to be given the opportunity to work with artists in the greater field of dance. These guest artists work on our students’ behalf to make connections to the world of dance, fulfilling the mission of the university.”

This year will showcase the choreography of dance faculty and guest artists from the Belhaven University Dance Ensemble at the Bitsy Irby Visual Arts and Dance Center Studio. Styles will include classical and contemporary ballet and contemporary modern dance. The program contains works restaged and original choreography by guest artists that include "The Dream Scene" from Don Quixote restaged by Henry Danton and original choreography “Vivid’ by Betsy McMillian, “Here Am I” by Ryan Corriston, “On a Count of One” by Randall Flinn and “Voices” by Shizu Yasuda.
