Beth Brody (Myra Greenblatt) (Dance MFA 79)

Beth Brody (Myra Greenblatt) (Dance MFA 79) reports, “After receiving my MFA in dance, I studied further for an MFA in poetry from the Writers’ Workshop at the University of Iowa. I taught ballet and modern dance for 30 years. I performed in my own and others’ pieces, based in Minneapolis. I received choreography fellowships from the MICA/McKnight program and the NEA. I participated in eight Choreographers’ Evenings at Walker Art Center, three as coordinator or curator. I also had the pleasure of two visits to the CalArts School of Dance to make pieces with other alumni. The University of Iowa Foundation published three articles that I wrote—profiles of arts staff. I’ll retire from teaching soon (I’m 65), though I still hope to choreograph. I’m married to Edwin Ira Brody and have a grown stepson, Elliot.”
