Student and Alumni Spotlights for the Dance Program

Audrey Hammitt, Dance Major

Name: Audrey Hammitt
Major: Dance
Hometown: Richmond, Va.
Fact: I used to figure skate

I chose to come to Belhaven because... I was looking for a genuinely Christian university that also had a strong dance program, and Belhaven satisfied both of those characteristics the best.

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven... Although this relationship has been with different people each year, I would say the relationships I have had with my residence hall RAs have meant a lot to me. Having an RA is a blessing because I can go to her for help, company, and/or advice, and I know that I will be heard and cared for.

Because of my degree from Belhaven University... I will have a greater, more well-rounded knowledge of dance and how to use the creative gifts God has given me to glorify Him. My BFA degree in Dance will also show the time and effort I have poured into fine-tuning my technique, artistry, and choreographic skills. In addition, this degree will enable me to view the world through a Christian perspective and inspire me to seek ways to make God known among our neighbors and the nations.

One word to describe my experience at Belhaven: Growth
