Pandemic Response

Dear Dance Community, Friends, Students, Alumni, Visitors, and Prospective Students,

During this time of extreme health circumstances, the Dance Department faculty and staff are working remotely, as is most of Wesleyan University. If you have any questions regarding curriculum, courses, or general questions, please email Michele Olerud (

Also of note: our current students have worked on exciting and unique final class projects which were completed remotely during social/physical distancing. We will share these virtual projects with you here, along with the works of alumni who have responded to the pandemic with their art.

Wesleyan University’s Center for the Arts is also highlighting many student, faculty/artists, and alumni virtual works since the pandemic.

We hope you all stay safe.
