Dance Teachers I have Studied with for More than Half a Year to Upwards of Five Years
These generous people (hopefully) remember me if we are not still in communicado via Facebook, email, real life, etc... Teachers are listed in vague chronological order given overlaps in time spent with certain teachers (ei. I took my first jazz class with Mary Waugh-Taylor as a fourteen year old ballerina and later became her co-worker and friend, took her adult ballet class, and performed her modern choreography in Omaha between undergrad in Pennsylvania and grad school in Iowa). This list is truly humbling. Thank you.
