OSU Students, the Best of 2010

3rd Year Dance MFA, Ale Jara, was selected as one of Paraguay’s top 20 Outstanding Women. (Spanish Article)

Amanda Byarsduet, “If I were a Weathervane and You were a Flower,” was selected by Columbus Alive as one of the top dance events of 2010, along with last year’s Dance Downtown: Remix Culture.


Also named as one of the best by Columbus Alive was Double/Take: "Although only the two dancer/choreographers, Meghan Durham and Karl Rogers, knew what the other three choreographers (Susan Hadley, Bebe Miller, and Lisa Race) were up to, "Double/Take" had unexpected coherence and a fluid arc."

And finally, check out our mention in the Columbus Dispatch list of best dance events in 2010. "Balance and disharmony, deeply felt emotion and offhand exuberance, the passage of time and the effect it has on culture - all were expressed in a four-part jumble of modern dance, light-up hula hoops and African drumming... Remix Culture offered four world premieres by four well-known choreographers working with students from Ohio State University's justly esteemed Dance Department."
