    The students are very friendly and open. It was very easy to settle in as a freshman and feel at home. I am part of the Ballet company and have friends in the Modern, Jazz and Tap companies and all of us enjoy practicing and performing. The downside is that the dance department is loosing money so dance classes are being cut from the program quite rapidly.
