Cynthia Newland, Associate Professor of Dance and Chair of the Dance Department said, “I am looking forward to our department offering the University and community the occasion to experience high quality art created by artists who continue to make an impact in secular and sacred arenas. Our students are blessed to be given the opportunity to work with artists in the greater field of dance. These guest artists work on our students’ behalf to make connections to the world of dance, fulfilling the mission of the university.”
Our dance students have an impact that reaches beyond the Jackson Metro area. During the Belhaven University Dance Department’s 5 weeks (May-June 2014) tour three faculty members and nine students traveled throughout South Korea. Faculty members Cynthia Newland and Laura Morton drove the Korea Dance Ensemble nearly 3,000 miles, traveled to 13 cities and performed at 33 venues. The aims of the trip were successfully accomplished as the Ensemble brought the truth and hope of Jesus Christ through the art of dance to both Christian and non-Christian. The group offered dance teachings and performance to a variety of settings including K-12 schools, colleges and universities, churches, theaters, a retirement center and hospital.
