Students were encouraged to pursue passion, get involved and appreciate the arts during Tuesday’s dance assembly by the BYU Department of Dance.
Prior to performances, Brandon Beck, BYUSA president, addressed the student body about passion and getting involved. Following his remarks, several BYU dance groups performed their program entitled, “Creativity — A Manifestation of Love.”
According to President Samuelson, BYU has the largest dance department in the United States. Beck recognized the opportunity that gives the campus to have some amazing dancers. Beck’s remarks were inspired by modern dancer and choreographer Martha Graham.
“Great dancers are not great because of their technique. They’re great because of their passion,” Graham said.
Beck spoke further to students about Graham’s idea of passion.
