CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The Austin Peay State University Department of Theatre and Dance will host the 2015 American College Dance Association South Region Conference from March 6-9, 2015. About 400 conference participants are expected to attend this year’s event at APSU, which will feature dance classes, workshops, panel discussions and dance performances.

As a part of the conference, college and university dance programs are encouraged to bring dance works for adjudication by an independent panel of dance professionals. This year’s adjudicator panel includes Loretta Livingston, associate professor of dance at the University of California-Irvine; Robin Gee, associate professor of dance at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro; and Robert Gosnell, who performed with the Nashville Ballet from 1999-2007, worked with the Atlanta Dance Theatre and is on the staff of N-House Dance productions. 

The conference will feature several guest artists who will offer classes that many university dance programs cannot offer on a regular basis. Classes like West African dance, hip hop dance, aerial dance and several tap dance classes will be offered, as well as classes in ballet, modern dance, jazz dance and contemporary dance. Partnering skills and dance improvisation also will be offered.
