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.

Bonstelle Theatre
The December Dance Concert highlights the work of renowned guest artists, faculty, and select students.  The 2014 December Dance Concert features eight diverse works from renowned guest artists, faculty, and select students, including the relentlessly energetic Of the Earth Far Below, choreographed by the 2014-15 Allesee Artist in Residence, Doug Varone, director of Doug Varone and Dancers in New York City. Biba Bell’s assembly illuminates dance as more than the sum of its parts, as a single dancer sets the ensemble into motion. The program also features Haitian Suite, an African dance offering by To Sangana, the Wayne State African Dance Workshop Company and Doubt, a hip hop piece by faculty member Travis Staton-Marrero.
