Hi everyone, this blog is to get the word out that we have some amazing things happening here at St. Lawrence University in our dance courses. My name is Kerri Canedy and I am the dance instructor at SLU. I teach Ballet, Jazz and Modern dance. I artistic direct and produce a full dance concert at the end of each semester that includes dance pieces from each of the classes as well as student choreography. In Fall 2011 we offered a Middle Eastern dance course that was also very popular. I will be posting photos and videos of different dance pieces as well as documenting the progress of some of our choreographic endeavors.
Besides the dance courses St. Lawrence University offers, there are many opportunities for dance on campus. The Swingin’ Saints is a swing dance club, and Baila is a Latin dance organization. Dance Ensemble is a student dance group that produces their own show each term, and there is also a dance team that performs at many of our sporting events. These are just a few examples of the many dance opportunities on campus. So, if you are interested in exploring dance at St. Lawrence University come and join the fun.
