Mentoring the Muses

Through Mentoring the Muses, a special partnership with Hunter's Muse Scholars Program, select AGDEP students have the opportunity to teach dance and dance critcism to undergraduate Muse Scholars. Muse Scholars Director Dara Meyers-Kingsley and AGDEP Director Kathleen Isaac design specific classes by consulting with AGDEP students, who bring their own training and experience to the sessions they lead. AGDEP students help the Muse Scholars learn how to appreciate and critique dance using professional analytical skills, then take them to the dance floor, teaching new techniques during special workshops, which have been held both on and off campus at venues including Ballet HispanicoDance Theatre of Harlem, and Studio 353.
