News, Press Release, In The News


Department of Dance students took advantage of working with ballet legend, Edward Villella, in a master class in October 3, 2014. Considered the most celebrated American male dancer of all time, Villella has been a prominent figure in the arts—as a dancer, producer and personality—since the late 1950s. Students shared the studio with Villella and learned about his impact on the ballet world and pop culture during a multimedia lecture.
