On Friday, April 18, students from University City High School in St. Louis will spend the day on the Webster University home campus experiencing the life of a dance major. This is the culminating event of a Dance Residency sponsored by the Fox Performing Arts Charitable Trust and many generous donors. The program, which has been serving area high schools for the past three years, consists of Webster Dance students performing a lecture and demonstration in the school and a seven-day intensive of dance improvisation classes led by Webster dance fellows and interns.

“The Dance Residency is a wonderful opportunity for our college students and the area high school students to connect and learn from each other,” says department chair James Robey. “Heidi Morgan does excellent work at University City High School and we are happy that we can support what she has built here.”

Morgan received the Arts Educator of the Year Award this year from the Arts and Education Council. The Webster Dance fellows for this year are Lanese Collier, Abby Ellison, Keron Foster, Tayler Kinner and Elizabeth Lindenmeier. The Webster Dance interns are Camaron Ballard, Jaclyn Fross and Shannon Haubrich.
