SRU dance student wins invitation to prestigious Cincinnati Ballet Collegiate Intensive
Leave it to a Slippery Rock University student to use a metaphor about smoothing rocks to describe the daily grind of a summer research project.
"The last rock is the most polished," said Ashleigh Schuler, a senior dance major from Williamsport. "I'm just smoothing out the edges as far as my dance technique and artistry as well as my educational understanding of the dance field that I'm about to enter."
Before starting her final year at SRU this fall, Schuler is honing her craft with the top college ballet dancers and instructors in North America at the Cincinnati Ballet Collegiate Intensive, June 17 to July 26.
