TDPS On the Move! | Kennedy Center Millennium Stage

I loved being a dance major at the University of Maryland College Park. Being in the School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies (TDPS) really gave me a home and place to explore my interests in dance education, performance, photography, videography, and projection design just to name a few. Going to see many of my friends who are still in the program and teachers perform at the Kennedy Center reaffirmed for me how awesome the dance program and community is at Maryland.

When I got there before the show started one of our faculty, Sara Pearson was just finishing up a class so I had to move fast to get a few shots of it before the ended!

This was an excerpt from "Full Circle, Bridging the Gap", a thesis work that I'm actually also performing in but because I couldn't make it to tech I didn't perform. It was great though because I knew exactly which moments I wanted to capture! If you are free make sure you come see the show December 9-11 at the Clarice. For more information go to
