Students Attend Aerial Dance Master Class

Students from the Dept. of Fine and Applied Arts/Dance Program and Assistant Professor Christine Bennett recently attended an Aerial Dance master class at Boston University. The class teaches dancers how to climb, swing, drop, flip, spin, and perform using aerial silk material suspended from the rafters.
