Dance Department Performances

During the 2018-2019 season, the Belhaven University Dance Department is delighted to offer a variety of concerts via our Belhaven University Dance Ensemble, Dance Ministry Ensemble, Master of Fine Arts Concert, and the Senior Dance Concert.  The Community Dance Concert involves Belhaven University artists as well as dance companies, schools, and ministries from throughout Mississippi.  All of our events include original compositions created by our innovative dance faculty, seasoned guest artists, and students studying dance crafting.  For this series, I invite you to experience diverse styles of classical and contemporary ballet and modern and contemporary dance displaying an array of artistic expressions that will evoke your imagination and enrich your soul.
