Towson University’s Dance Department has continued to break the mold of what many usually expect from a dance performance. The dancers and choreographers have continued to shift their style and artistry to stay in touch with the ever-evolving art world.

Their spring performance, “Interludes,” debuted this past Friday, May 1, where not only is there a ballet repertory piece performed in tie dye, but there are also multiple comedic acts featuring a variety of props.

It was an up-and-down season for Towson, and the Colonial Athletic Association tournament did not stray from the script. Coming in as the No. 4 seed, Towson upset No.1 Hofstra by scoring four goals in overtime to set up a meeting with No.2 seed James Madison in the championship game on Sunday.

Story of a town, not just a crime

By: Carley Milligan, Editor-in-Chief

The members of Towson’s Actors Anonymous theatre troupe brought real and relevant problems to light through their production of “The Laramie Project” May 2 and 3 in the Chesapeake rooms.
