Friends of Dance Scholarship Students, Summer 2009

Every year, our Friends of Dance organization awards scholarships to select dance majors and minors to help them study at prestigious summer dance programs around the country. For summer 2009, five students received scholarships.

Recent graduates Ellen Lyle and Caitlin Yuhas, and rising senior Tiffany Greenwood went to the American Dance Festival (ADF) at Duke University. Ellen wrote a wonderful blog about her experiences, complete with video ( Rising senior Kaitlyn Pados and rising sophomore Kirsten Cooper attended the Bates Dance Festival in Maine. Both programs offered an intensive experience for students, with daily classes in a variety of dance genres.

The unanimous response from the students when asked about their summer dance experiences? Amazing and transforming!
