Jennie Creer-King, one of the program coordinators, said the show gives students an opportunity to see their dance professors in a more personal way.

"Not only will you see faculty dancing or choreographing, but you will see what dancing means to each of them," she said.

Selections include choreography by Colleen West, who will showcase her new work for Homecoming Spectacular, and Raymond and Julie Robinson, a husband-and-wife team with Raymond Robinson choreographing and Julie Robinson performing.

Other faculty performing or choreographing include Julie Ahlander, Jennie Creer-King, Marilyn Berrett, Kathy Thomas, Caroline Prohofsky, Lisa Stoddard and Amy Jacobson.
