I’ve grown up dancing my entire life and was nervous that I would not be able to dance in college. The Dance Ensemble here at Sacred Heart has allowed me to continue with my passion for dance while balancing my schoolwork and social time, and for that, I am grateful. ~Kristen Kamenides, Class of 2019
Dance Company was an easy way to get involved at SHU while continuing to take dance classes and receive professional instruction. I’ve made some of my best friends through Dance Company while being able to do something I love. ~Jenna Lynch, Class of 2016
