KSU Dance Company achieves success at Regional American College Dance Festival

The KSU Dance Company was extremely successful at the Regional American College Dance Festival held in Alabama, March 10-13, 2017, with both adjudicated works selected for the Gala Concert.

Israeli Artist-in-Residence Ella Ben Aharon choreographed “Hyperselves” and dance major Will VanMeter choreographed “Double Helix,” two works presented by KSU Dance this year. “Hyperselves” was the only work out of 46 performed at the festival that received a standing ovation. This work also received the honor of closing the Gala Concert.

This gala selection is extremely important to KSU’s historic record of success at ACDA, once again placing KSU Dance as a leading collegiate dance program not just in Georgia, but in the Southeast.

A special thanks to the Schusterman Visiting Artist Program at the Israeli Institute and the Consulate of Israel in Atlanta for funding Ella Ben-Aharon’s residency at KSU Dance last year.  

KSU Dance is scheduled to host the Southeast Regional American College Dance Association in 2019.
