Teaching the Next Generation of Artists

I recently had the honor of guest lecturing at the Dancing to Connect Institute, an intensive program developed by Battery Dance Company. It is designed for students who wish to translate their passion for dance into a sustainable career, offering them the opportunity to extend their craft beyond their university and into the community around them. 

Participants came from Lehman College, Oberlin College, Rider University, Slippery Rock University, University of Rhode Island, and from as far away as Northern Ireland and India.

In the two hour session we discussed how dancers can use storytelling through digital and social media to promote and further the impact of their programs.
