Exhibit: Celebrating Dance Education through SiNY

Kasser Family Exhibition Space, First Floor

Did you know that the field of dance education was conceived at Teachers College in 1916 by Margaret H’Doubler, a visiting biology doctoral student from the University of Wisconsin at Madison who studied with John Dewey, TC’s iconic philosopher? That TC operated a dance education master’s degree program until 2005, producing leaders in dance — to name a few, Jody Gottfried Arnhold, dance educator and arts advocate; Founding Director of 92Y Dance Education Laboratory (DEL; Barbara Bashaw, the Graduate Director of Dance Education, Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University; Martha Hill, the first dance director at The Juilliard School; Sin Cha Hong, the noted South Korean dancer, choreographer, vocalist and writer; Beryl McBurnie, the Trinidadian dancer known as La Belle Rosette; Rachel Moore, the president and CEO of LA’s Music Center and the former Executive Director of American Ballet Theatre; and Annie-B P Parson, the choreographer and co-director of Big Dance Theater?
