Student Dance Production Board

The Student Dance Production Board (SDPB) is responsible for successfully managing every aspect of the annual Student Dance Concert. This concert is entirely choreographed, performed, and managed by students. The duties of the Board include promotions and marketing, fundraising, scheduling auditions and rehearsals, planning adjudications, and technical management. The Board's primary goal is to raise money for the Michelle Vargas Scholarship Fund, which is awarded to one dancer in the department each year. SDPB also puts on an annual 5K Tutu Run to raise funds.
