Prof. Natasha Davis, Assistant Professor, Dance
“MSU is a great place for the experienced to novice dancers to learn, create, hone their craft, and become an artist within the field of dance. The MSU Dance Ensemble also provides wonderful opportunities for dancers to work with nationally & internationally recognized choreographers, perform on campus, tour within the community, and perform at regional or national dance festivals. Through a positive, energetic, and passionate learning environment, MSU Dance truly is artistry in motion!”
