Professor looks to impart an appreciation of indigenous dance

The love of dance runs deep for Dr. Carla Walter. It’s not only the aesthetic value of it she enjoys but how it allows people to express their feelings and emotions and connects them to the world around them.

“I have always loved dance,” said Walter. “From the time I was a young child, but also now, I love the spirituality of it.”
