College of Fine Arts and Communication

Department of Dance


In the fifteen year period between 1994 and 2009, 83% of dance department alumni found jobs teaching dance, performing, or working in dance administration. In spite of the recent recession, our graduates continue to successfully pursue careers in dance.

Virtually all of our K-12 graduates who decide to teach find jobs working in public institutions. In 2012, Rebecca Morgan (S01) was directing more than 500 students at Elite Dance Studio in Silverspring, the school; she opened in 2006; Danny Gillard (S05) was performing in Braunschweig, Germany; Maura (Pierannunzio) Herrera (S06) was in London studying at the R.A.D. Masters of Teaching Dance Program; May Hardy (07) had just finished her MFA in Dance Performance/Teaching at SUNY Purchase; Samantha Harvey (08) was performing with the Rockettes; Heather Zampier (09) was directing the Dance Academy of Severna Park; and Rebecca Hayden (F10) was working with Youth America Grand Prix, an international ballet competition.


Alumni Advisory Board

Building on our Departmental Vision of Dancing for a Lifetime we hope to build and nurture our professional relationships for a lifetime.

The Alumni Advisory Board meets yearly and coordinates programs to engage Alumni in meaningful relationships with our current students, faculty, and other alumni. The vision of the board is to create a network of Towson Dance Alumni that share professional and personal ties across the nation and the world.
