Wayne State Insiders at the Allesee Dance Theatre
December 5 2014 at 1:30 PM
Old Main
In celebration of another great year for the Wayne State Insiders, we have a special treat from the Maggie Allesee Department of Theatre and Dance. On Friday, Dec. 5, we will get a sneak peek at the dance performance that will be featured at the annual Noel Night festivities the following evening. Join us to hear about the program from professor and WSU alumna Linda Simmons at 1:30 p.m. at the Allesee Dance Theatre in Old Main. Attendees are also invited to enjoy the final dress rehearsals for the show. The hour-long rehearsals will be held at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m., and you may choose the performance that best fits your schedule. The Wayne State Insiders includes alumni, friends, students, parents, faculty and staff who serve as informal ambassadors for Wayne State and our Midtown community. We welcome anyone excited about the positive impact of WSU and Detroit’s urban renewal. The more we learn, the more we can share, and the greater our collective impact can be.
