Recent alum featured in New York Times' #SpeakingInDance video series

BFA dancer Bria Bacon graduated in May 2017, but she's already squarely in the spotlight. Bacon, whom we interviewed in the fall when she landed her dream job with the Stephen Petronio Company, is a featured dancer in The New York Times' weekly #SpeakingInDance video series. Watch the video here, as Bacon, on leave from the EdM program in Dance Education, dances and speaks about technique and stamina for an upcoming run with the company at The Joyce Theater.

“Every time I find a stable ground with the technique, I add an element of risk — it’s surprising yourself as well as the audience,” Bacon says of Signals, a 1970 work by the late modern dance pioneer Merce Cunningham.
