KENNESAW, Ga. -- The brand new Department of Dance at Kennesaw State University recently underwent its first expansion.
The new facilities include two studios, a classroom, a student lounge, faculty offices, costume and scene shops, and a storage area. The studios are equipped with state-of-the-art sprung floors and audio-visual equipment.
"It is exciting to now have facilities that will support our success and growth and provide a home for the department," Ivan Pulinkala, chair and founding director of the department, said in a statement. "(The Department of Dance) is now the largest dance program in Georgia and it has become a highly selective, high-demand program, with over 100 majors auditioning every year for approximately 25 available slots."
Now that the new facilities are ready, the department plans to add a master's degree program and seek accreditation from the National Association of Schools of Dance.
