Student SpotlightElla Stier '23
Majors: Dance, Writing and rhetoric
"I’ve had a passion for dance my entire life and the Dance and Movement Studies department at HWS gifts me opportunities to continue exploring each curiosity I have. The small but extremely dedicated faculty have devoted more time, effort and support to my education than any other academic mentors I have worked with.
I am currently working on an Honors project in Composition exploring questions and research about improvisation as composition and the purpose/healing capabilities of movement. I plan to pursue a Master's of Fine Arts in Dance after graduation to continue to study the topics that interest me most, like Body-Mind Centering, Contact Improvisation and more."
