Amanda Sowerby (Goldman) ’90

Amanda Sowerby (Goldman) ’90 writes, “After CalArts, I received an MFA in Modern Dance from the University of Utah. I worked for several years with the Gary Palmer Dance Company in California’s Bay Area and assisted in setting new and repertory pieces on the National Ballet of Peru and the National Ballet of Chile, as well as implementing outreach programs in dance for Bay Area community members. I have performed with the National Ballets of Chile and Peru, Enrico Labayen’s Lab Projekt USA, Yasmin Mehta’s California Contemporary Dancers, and Todd Courage/Courage Group. My own choreographic work has been presented at Dance Theatre Workshop (NY, NY), Theatre Artaud (SF, CA), Diesel Cathedral (SF, CA), Dance Mission (SF, CA), and The Rose Wagner Theater (SLC, UT). I’ve served on the board of the Utah Dance Education Organization as President (2015–2018) and as the Higher Education Representative (2007–2013). In addition to my faculty position at WSU, I’m proud to serve as Associate Dean of the Telitha E. Lindquist College of Arts & Humanities.”
