During the March 14-16 event, GCU students competed against and took classes with dancers from Rutgers’ Mason Gross School of the Arts, Temple University, Philadelphia’s University of the Arts, Fairleigh Dickinson University and more than 30 other schools.

“This is the one place where the best college dance programs come together each year,” said Silvana Cardell, director of the Georgian Court University dance program. “It is an incredible honor for our dancers to showcase not only their own talent, but also the choreography of Caitlin Quinn Pittenger.
