Departmental Meeting
Departmental meeting this Friday, January 9, 2009 from 11:30am-12:30pm in Studio 1. Technique teachers, please note the shortened class. Please come for up to the minute communication about events. Also, I want to hear about your activities that weave in and out of the department; we will plan the Friday Workshops. Bring your lunch.

Note to all Graduate Students

Please meet me for the Second Annual Town Hall Meeting for Graduate Students with the Chair. Friday, February 6, 2009 from 4:30pm-6:00pm in the Studio 5 “White Box.” (Light refreshments included.)

This is a chance for some face-to-face time to ask questions about anything, keep me in the loop about life in Sullivant Hall as a graduate student, and for you all to see each other out of classes and rehearsals. It will be just us. - SVPP

In an ongoing effort to maximize communication, both bulletin boards that are in the Studio 1 hallway will now be all about communicating day to day business of the department: current and upcoming quarter’s schedules, production calendars, cast lists, technique lists, course announcements, Monday announcements. Please make a daily habit of checking it out. The Dance Notation Bureau bulletin board will now be outside the costume shop, next to the DVD player where we can watch repertory.
