From their website: "Graduates from the Mills Dance Program go on to successful and varied careers in all aspects of the field. Many of our graduates form their own companies and pursue careers on the national or international dance scene, while remaining connected to Mills. Renowned choreographer and MacArthur Genius Fellow Trisha Brown ’54 visits our Dance Department when she is performing in the area. Molissa Fenley ’75 returns annually for a semester to teach choreography and create repertory for students. She has won the American Academy of Rome Prize, received two “Bessie” awards for choreography, and has been commissioned to make work all over the world.
Others teach dance and choreography at esteemed universities across the country or make their mark in innovative ways. Some of our visionary alumnae—like Allison Orr and Patricia Reedy—have created one-of-a-kind organizations that expand the reach of dance to new audiences."
