The Pittsburgh Dance Ensemble is one of Pittsburgh’s earliest modern dance companies. The ensemble combines a variety of dance styles, including modern dance, ballet, jazz, hip-hop and ethnic dance. The group was introduced to Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania in July 2003, and its members range from high school age to professional-level artists.
On the actual Martin Luther King Day holiday date, January 21, Penn State Fayette students (who have a day off from classes) will gather to have a “Day On” to perform community service.
The Martin Luther King Jr. celebration at Penn State Fayette is sponsored by the campus’ Diversity Task Force.
