New space for dance

Congrats to Moving in the Spirit and Kennesaw State University for opening new spaces for dance and thus expanding their existing programming.

From the press release, "Moving in the Spirit, a nonprofit youth development program, completed construction this fall on a new dance space that will serve hundreds of youth in the Atlanta community. Named after Dougald “Mac” Monroe Jr., an advocate for racial equality and Founding Academic Dean of Atlanta Metropolitan College, “The MAC” stage resides in a large warehouse adjacent to Moving in the Spirit’s existing facility. The MAC was officially unveiled as a surprise to Mr. Monroe on November 26, 2010, his 90th birthday."

From Ivan at KSU, "The Kennesaw State University Program in Dance is pleased to announce the opening of our new state-of-the-art dance facility at Chastain Pointe. This 8,000 square-foot facility will be the new home of the dance program at KSU. We are grateful for the support of our friends in the community who have helped us develop a dance program of national repute. The KSU Dance Company holds the national distinction of being selected for 4 successive regional gala concerts and 2 successive national concerts at the American College Dance Festival. In 2011, the enrollment in the KSU dance major will cross the 100-student mark, with 14 faculty and plans for the expansion into an additional dance facility at Chastain Pointe."

Yay to more space to move in, Atlanta!
