The annual Barlow exhibition gives students a chance to share with their friends, professors, and staff what they’ve seen and experienced abroad.

As part of the celebration of 50 Years of Bates Dance, the Bates Dance Archives Interactive Exhibition, set up in Gannett Theater, was curated by Sara Hollenberg '19 (black tank top), a double major in dance and mathematics from Stamford, Conn., and Rebecca Howard '19 (black long sleeved shirt) of Aspen, Colo,, a double major in art and visual culture and religious studies (with a minor in dance)Sara:I think one of the most important things about this, for me has been recognizing both the depth and the breadth of what the Bates dance program has been. And also, you know, we lost our founder a couple years ago. And so this has been another way to sort of weave her memory in, in a permanent sense. And reminding people of that.Rebecca:I think it's also a lot about showing how connected the generations of dance are, how we've all had all these experience with a lot of great professors and we all know the other, like reunion class year, and we get to meet older alums and especially we can see it through pictures and costumes that like, there are things -- like I'm looking at those pants that are right there.And somebody wears them every year in a concert just because they're so popular, and everyone gets to come here and bond and be like, I wore the pants. I wore the pants. I wear the pants and it's this great experience where you have this community that is your class and the classes around you. And then you get to add to that with all these other alums who have shared the same awesome experience. Sara: The network is really incredible and super important and very much a part of what it means to be a Bates dancer and in that community
At age 50, Bates dance is still ‘the same awesome experience’
