In Motion

I was both excited and nervous to direct and choreograph the first show in the newly renovated Charles E. Maedgen, Jr. Theatre. This was the first ever musical directed by a member of the dance faculty, and I think it reflects the strong bonds we are building between the School of Theatre AND Dance. I have had great collaborators during this process – students, faculty, and staff—and deeply appreciate the work that theatre and design do within their own programs and how they are preparing their students post-graduation.
