Wes Chapman, artistic director of American Ballet Theatre II, works with SFA ballet students during a recent master class. Chapman's troupe of 12 dancers performed in W.M. Turner Auditorium Tuesday, March 9, as part of the SFA College of Fine Arts' University Series. Each season, the College of Fine Arts brings in five nationally touring artists to provide quality arts programming for East Texans and to enrich the university students' educational experiences. Heather Samuelson, the students' instructor, said it was a privilege to have Chapman work with her Ballet II class.
