CWRU dance department opens 2015-16 season with “Permanent Moments”

Permanent Moments performanceThe Department of Dance at Case Western Reserve University will open its 2015-16 performance season with “Permanent Moments,” on Oct. 30 and 31 at 8 p.m., Nov. 1 at 2:30 p.m. and Nov. 5, 6 and 7 at 8 p.m., at Mather Dance Center.
