Muse Scholars partner with Arnhold Dance Education Program
The Muse Scholar Program has partnered with Hunter College's Arnhold Graduate Dance Education Program for special workshops and events both on and off campus.

In the classroom, students learned how to appreciate and critique dance using professional analytical skills. Students also hit the dance floor, learning technique during workshops with Isaac and graduate students enrolled in the Arnhold program. The workshops were held at both Hunter and at Ballet Hispanico, a Manhattan organization that celebrates Latino cultures through dance.
Isaac also accompanied the Muse Scholars to a dance talk and performances at New York City Center's Fall for Dance Festival. Students witnessed dances and heard from members of the Moiseyev Dance Company, Ballet West, Tu Dance and Nan Jombang.
