Jessica Salvesen, Dance Major
“I love that the department allows you to grow as an individual and as an artist. Because classes are small, you receive individual attention and the professors are understanding. They teach you to work through your own problems, to be a professional. I am very thankful for everything they have done for me as a person and as a dancer.”
