The last time I interviewed Kyla Olson, it was two years ago to explore how dance was navigating the transition to virtual classes and performance. Today, I was able to meet with her and Dr. Tanya Calamoneri to discuss the transition back to live performance and the upcoming production of "DanceTech."
I am writing this on my plane ride back to Lubbock from New York City where I spent the past two months collaborating with School of Theatre and Dance professor, director Jesse Jou, on The Acting Company’s educational tour of Shakespeare’s "Twelfth Night."
If you’ve been around the theatre building at all in the last five years, you’re probably familiar with Abigail Bugh as a student or maybe even as a coordinator in our dance program. Before the start of the 2021-2022 academic year, she transitioned into a new role as Graduate Programs Coordinator for the School of Theatre and Dance.
