The School of the Arts has developed a program for dancers who want more than just class every week. This faculty-led group provides performance opportunities for dance minors and other qualified students. Dansynthesis meets twice weekly to learn repertory and new choreography for presentation in the annual spring concert and other venues. This exciting new project began in the fall of 2009. Since then, Dansynthesis has performed in the Alabama Dance Showcase at the Alabama Dance Festival, competed at Panoply of the Arts, performed in Samford Operaworks productions and at Step Sing Saturday evening during the judges deliberations.
