Beth Brody ’79

Beth Brody ’79 recalls, “At 65, I look back over the years: children’s roles with New York City Ballet and Bolshoi Ballet; teen years with Omaha Civic Ballet; study at the Royal Ballet School; pieces for CalArts alumni dance concerts; a teaching award at Gustavus Adolphus College; a year as Visiting Artist in Dance at Luther College; collaborating on “Women of Color” for a Choreographers’ Evening at Walker Art Center; performing in others’ works; choreography fellowships from MICA/McKnight and the NEA; and volunteering with Free Arts Minnesota—the CalArts years seem the most joyful, most lively.”
