From the Pen of John-Mario Sevilla


John-Mario Sevilla, Director of Dance Education Laboratory at the 92nd Street Y has written a piece for Career Transitions (PDF). He reflects on making the transition from dance to arts administration and then returning to dance while pursuing a a career in education:

When I received a Career Transition For Dancers grant a dozen years ago, I had recently left Pilobolus. I had been the Dance Captain, but had entered that stage when the one-night gigs and transportation hassles, the physical demands, and my own waning passion coalesced into an inevitable, however fraught, decision to move on. A dancer from birth to earth, however, I was determined to stay in the field. I adored the wise, gracious teachers who had moved me in unexpected directions, so I ventured to become one of them.

The Dance Education Laboratory at 92Y is a professional development program for all educators and artists interested in developing their dance education curricula.

We will be having a DEL Open House on Nov 1, from 1:30 to 5 PM.  Visit our facilities, meet our faculty and other members of the DEL community, and preview the courses for 2009-2010. You can call 212.415.5551 or email for more information.
