From 2015-2017, I worked as the Andrew W. Mellon Interdisciplinary Choreography through the Movement Matters Residency at Middlebury College. This residency was a 44-month institutional exploration at Middlebury College that sought to foster artistic creation and curricular development at the pedagogical nexus of embodied learning and scholarly interests with a special emphasis on increasing global understanding. During my time as the artist-in-residency, I collaborated with students, faculty, staff, the local community, and my professional colleagues beyond the institution to 1) choreograph dance works and teach movement-based classes and workshops with a broad range of participants, 2) develop interdisciplinary projects, 3) host residencies with national and international artists, and 4) develop curricular lessons in programs across campus. This program was made possible by a major performing arts grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
