Student Investment Project
Each year the Department of Dance provides senior students with opportunities to engage with dance artists and learn more about a major metropolitan center, its dance facilities and career opportunities. Students take master classes, participate in workshops, and round table discussions with members of the local dance community, including prominent dance companies and professionals.
In May 2017 students ventured to New York City, where they had fantastic educational and networking experiences with:
- Gibney Dance
- Mike Esperanza
- Kat Wildish
- Quilan Arnold
- Andrea Miller
- Harkness Center for Dance Injuries
The students also particpated in panel discussions on subjects such as careers in dance science, took a tour of American Ballet Theatre, saw performances of "Sleep No More" and the New York City Ballet, and enjoyed a bit of sightseeing.
Previous trips have included:
- New York
- San Francisco
- Los Angeles
