The minEvent will feature Brenau dancers in costumes designed by faculty member Fred Lloyd and vocal music of composer John Cage, performed live by music major Arielle Crumley.
Brenau's participating dancers are: Bonnie Acree, Amanda Bonilla, Melinda Cassiday, Paris Hawkins, Emily Lemons, Savannah Long, Shanik Moore, Jenny Ray, Teniquia Westry, and Brianna Wiggins.
They will perform at New York City Center, Dance Studios, Feb. 28.
