This term at the University of Oregon, I am honored to get to engage is all sides of the creative coin in dance. Not only am I setting a new work, I am teaching, learning 6 new works as a part of University of Oregon Repertory Dance Company, performing in the faculty concert, and writing my thesis prospectus under the tutelage of Dr. Steven Chatfield. As a performer, I am faced with a diverse range of work ranging from dancing in my own new work, to understudying a Bella Lewistky solo for the faculty concert. It is wonderful to experience and question my technical range. As a teacher, my classes stretch from beginning Ballet to advanced Hip Hop.
Check back as American College Dance Association gets closer this spring. I will be posting about my classes and how they fit into my thesis research.
