Conference organizers at UALR are encouraging patrons to shop at Whole Foods Market on Monday, March 10.
As part of its “Community Giving Day,” Whole Foods will donate 5 percent of all net sales for the South Conference of the American College Dance Festival, hosted by the UALR Department of Theatre Arts and Dance March 21-24.
The conference, which is being completely funded by donations from community sponsors and registration fees, will provide more than 100 master classes, workshops and seminars taught by visiting faculty and nationally recruited guest artists.
“The more folks go out and make a purchase, the bigger and better the event will be,” said Jay Raphael, chair of the theatre arts and dance department.
The conference will feature four nights of public concerts with original works created by student and faculty choreographers from 30 participating colleges and universities.
