UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

See/Hear – March 24, 2010

Jenny Braswell, who graduated from UNCG last year, is a teacher of 3- and 4-year-olds in a dance studio in the Greensboro Cultural Arts Center. The class is one of dozens offered through The North Carolina Dance Project, a nonprofit founded by Jan Van Dyke, head of UNCG’s Department of Dance. Two years ago, the non-profit took over the City Arts dance program when city leaders decided they could no longer pay for it.

The Dance Project at City Arts now holds classes in tap, ballet, hip hop, contemporary and African dance for students of all ages. It’s a community dance studio with a simple motto: “All kinds of dance for all kinds of people.”

The program is part of Van Dyke’s efforts to nurture dance in Greensboro and throughout the state.
