Visiting Artists

Each year the School of Dance is honored to have several guest artists teaching classes, offering lectures and setting choreography on our students. These special guest augment our already renowned faculty and offer our students new opportunities and perspectives. Past visitors include legendary figures such as Alwin Nikolais, Doug Varone, Susan Marshall, Alonzo King and Barton Mumaw just to name a few.

In addition, The Maggie Allesee national Center for Choreography provides a constant breeze of up-and-coming, as well as established choreographers, dancers, composers, designers and other artists to our program.
Please visit for more information including bios, podcasts, and videos of these artists.
