If I wanted to let you know about all the exciting stuff that’s happening in the dance department at Kennesaw State University, I suppose I could write out a detailed list of the accomplishments that the new program has already amassed... and, trust me, it’s pretty impressive. But it would make my job a hell of a lot easier if you would just go to the dance department’s fall show now on the boards of the Stillwell Theater on the KSU campus through this weekend.

Seeing it for yourself would let you know, in a far more immediate way, that something oh-so-nice is going on up there, and that Atlanta and Georgia have only begun to reap the benefits of having a great new dance program in our midst. It’s a program that—although it’s just five years old—is well on course to gaining regional and even national prominence.
