At the peak of each season in Dallas, at lunchtime, the Meadows Hope Lobby is packed with an audience rapt in attention. On stage is the Brown Bag Dance Series, 10-15 performances of original, student-choreographed ballet, modern and jazz works, from the Division of Dance.  It runs for one week, every semester.

Photographer Paul Phillips and Kim Leeson were on hand to capture the original pieces from our Division of Dance students.
