Alum Success

The LSSU Dance program has provided me with excellent opportunities I could not have received at any other university. My ultimate career goal is to obtain a Clinical Doctorate in Speech-Language Pathology and find alternative forms of communication with my patients. The dance program has allowed me to choreograph and produce works of art that incorporated sign language as well as work with children of all ages. Because of these opportunities I am well prepared for my future goals and am set apart from other students in a very competitive field.

Reaching Out

Susie Drockton Sault Ste. Marie, MI

I love LSSU Dance Company. Being part of the Dance Company gave me an opportunity to make new friends and be involved in campus and community activities. We participate in such a wide variety of events that go way beyond dancing. I personally enjoy programs that allow us to introduce dance to young children. The smiles, hugs, and high-fives are priceless. There is something very special about being part of a campus organization that is really focused on giving back to the community while doing what we love.
