Jennifer Dail

Dance

North Star:

All of these artists are exceptional in their construct of choreography and movement. While each choreographer has a stylistic signature, the movement creation for each piece is unique to the intent or resource behind the choreography. This is what I endeavor to achieve as a choreographer, and to instill in my students as they find their artistic voices.

I am a firm believer in dance as an academic and artistic pursuit. These are three examples of universities that have exceptional programming in preparing students to enter the professional world. There are many, many more throughout the United States. I believe each student should put the time into researching (with help from their mentors, of course) schools that are going to align with their artistic sensibilities, financial realities, and professional goals.
