The dancers are also the first-ever to graduate from a historic black college or university (HBCU) in the U.S.

On Friday (April 7), the BFA seniors will present their dance projects, titled “HAPPENINGS: The Way We See It,” which will be performed at 6 p.m. at the ASU Leila Barlow Theatre.

Admission is free, but seating is limited.

The public is invited to share in all of the students’ performances.
