Alum Success

The LSSU Dance program has provided me with excellent opportunities I could not have received at any other university. My ultimate career goal is to obtain a Clinical Doctorate in Speech-Language Pathology and find alternative forms of communication with my patients. The dance program has allowed me to choreograph and produce works of art that incorporated sign language as well as work with children of all ages. Because of these opportunities I am well prepared for my future goals and am set apart from other students in a very competitive field.

Professor Deborah Choszczyk

"My hope is that through our dance education outreach program, young children will come to realize there are and used to be many different cultures. If live dance makes learning more real, gets kids up and moving, helps them to appreciate and respect differences, and provides a positive dance experience, I have helped educate the next generation by bringing history and the arts to them."

--Deborah Choszczyk

Professor Deborah Choszczyk teaches dance at LSSU and directs the LSSU Dance Company. Choszczyk uses her dance company for outreach into Michigan and northern Ontario schools. Ancient Egyptian dance was her undergraduate senior thesis project at Alma College. It forms the centerpiece of her outreach program.

Reaching Out

Susie Drockton Sault Ste. Marie, MI

I love LSSU Dance Company. Being part of the Dance Company gave me an opportunity to make new friends and be involved in campus and community activities. We participate in such a wide variety of events that go way beyond dancing. I personally enjoy programs that allow us to introduce dance to young children. The smiles, hugs, and high-fives are priceless. There is something very special about being part of a campus organization that is really focused on giving back to the community while doing what we love.
