Julie Mulvihill

Julie Mulvihill holds a PhD in Dance Theory and Practice from Texas Woman’s University, with a research focus of dance making within groups. She is interested in how we communicate, contribute, and shift roles as we create possibilities and make decisions toward a collaborative dance direction. Each dance making moment may ask different responses from its makers creating a dialogue of shared experience. Her most recent article, COLLABORATION: An Activity of Responsible Citizenship, which will appear in the September 2018 issue of Journal of Dance Education, explores how principles of responsible citizenship might contribute to a pedagogy of collaboration in dance making. This research also opens the potential for considering rehearsal as a pedagogical space. Dance making practices profoundly inform Julie’s ideas and philosophies about teaching and learning. Her teaching experiences greatly impact her research ideas and vice versa. Julie has taught extensively, danced and shown work throughout the US, as well as presented workshops and papers at conferences all over the world. She also holds a teaching certification in the Alexander Technique from Chesapeake Bay Alexander Studies. Julie has studied, practiced, and taught all kinds of movement in all kinds of ways with all kinds of people.
