The dancers and the actors alike have discussed how despite sometimes having a language barrier in class,...

    Spring 2013

    Kate Clark (Dance): “Giorgio, our dance performance teacher, says not to judge yourself. We can’t say if we are doing it “right” or “wrong” or “good” or “bad. We just have to do it how we do it, and that’s myself – which is “good enough.” This also goes along with something Mitsuru and...

Lately since...
