The fall concert, a.k.a. the “Hope Show” (in a nod to theBobHope Theatre), is significant this year formany performers, especially Southcott. She is looking forward to graduating inMay and pursuing a professional dance career, but is emo- tionally pressed to live this year like none before.

“No apologies,” said Southcott. “Don’t be sorry forwho you are, where you came from; every lesson you learn createswho you are.” Southcott, originally fromOntario, Canada, had oncemissed SMU’s audition deadline, butwas deter- mined to attend the school and try out again. Subsequently, shemade it to theHilltop as a dancemajor, and is thankful for the opportunities she’s been given.As graduation approach- es and as she prepares to enter the professionalworld, Southcott is moved by the dedication of the alumni choreographers and the lessons gleaned fromher professors and peers.


If the glittering firmament of alumni choreographers is evidence of the promising possibilities ahead, the sky’s the limit for Southcott,Berger and their contemporaries in theDivision ofDance at SMU’sMeadows School of theArts.
