First things first, the Parent's weekend show was quite the success! Congratulations to those that performed, you really represented the department in a positive light and demonstrated what a talented group of dancers the department has.
The Mercyhurst chapter of Nu Delta Alpha, the dance honor society, is having it's first tri-annual bake sale of the year! NDA is a prestigious organization within the department who's members must achieve a GPA of 3.4 or higher to be able to join. It also performs community outreach and raises dance awareness. The funds raised from the bake sale go to aid in helping us achieve community outreach.
The biggest news for this week is that we have the first group of auditionees coming in on friday! It is a full day process for the high school seniors that includes an audition class, campus tour, complementary lunch and a meeting with Ms. Hunter, the department chair. It really means that the year is in full swing when potential new members start coming to the department.
