In early October, the American College Dance Festival Association (ACDFA). chose KSC Professor of Dance William Seigh as its president. “I am very pleased to have this opportunity to support college dance on a national scale and to represent KSC in this position,” said Prof. Seigh, who received the Alumni Association’s
Distinguished Teacher Award in 2011.

“The American College Dance Festival Association was formed in 1971 to support and promote excellence in college dance,” said Prof. Seigh. “Each year, the association produces 12 conferences in regions across the country, serving over 5,000 participants annually. We also produce a national showcase of college dance biennially at the Kennedy Center. Our conferences offer college dance faculty and dance students an opportunity to have their works adjudicated and critiqued by established professionals. The ACDFA provides professional classes, workshops, and performing experiences, as well as other opportunities for interaction among all participants, and it creates opportunities for students to perform outside their own academic setting and be exposed to the diversity of the national college dance world. It serves to build a network of communication within the college dance community and between the college and the professional dance world, and it provides regional and national visibility for college-trained choreographers, performers, and faculty.”
