WKU dance alumni have also become involved with the program. Associate professor of dance, Meghen McKinley shared how they were able to get alumni participation in the concert. 

“Through social media alumni information sharing, a video finale including alumni from across the globe, special pre-show reels featuring archival footage, and an Alumni Dance Dance that invited alumni and prospective students to samplings of classes from current faculty,” McKinley said. 

The concert is suitable for all ages and includes classical and pop music and light-hearted themes.
