Love, marriage, death and seemingly unimportant everyday experiences may seem like run-of-the-mill parts of life, but they create something extraordinary in Anderson University’s latest production.

In July 2015, Leanna Miller, a junior exercise science major with a minor in dance performance, will lead a dance outreach program in Trinidad. The goal for Miller’s trip is to use dance as a form of ministry, worship and outreach.
“Dance is unique in that it can communicate through language and cultural barriers,” said Miller. “The Trinidadian culture is very expressive and vibrant, and dance is a language that they easily and enthusiastically accept.”
