In 2012, we had the great pleasure of seeing a number of recent Conservatory students and alumni join the ranks of other alumni already working with a wide variety of companies and choreographers. We’re proud of their work and delighted to see them taking on the professional realm.

  • Josianne Fleming and Sarah Woods joined San Francisco’s LEVYdance, directed by Benjamin Levy. You can catch a glimpse of their recent work in this video.
  • Sarah Lyman joined Ate9, directed by Danielle Agami, for the company’s residency in Los Angeles.
