In Their Own Words
Dani Kuepper, LLC Instructor (Dance):
“I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to get to know the Dance Foundations LLC students outside of the classroom walls. I’m happy to help them get acclimated to a new environment and assist them in navigating around the city to different art venues. But I also have the opportunity to become a better teacher as a result. I firmly believe that the better you understand and relate to your students – the bigger impact you may have on them.”
Eli King, LLC RA 2015-16 (Music):
“The most difficult part of studying music professionally is adjusting to the culture. And that can’t be taught in a classroom–it has to be lived. The Community provides a context in which students can define, develop, and discover what it means, and what it takes, to be a successful musician.”
Tyler Danhaus, Theatre Alumnus:
“Being a part of an LLC allowed me to meet people and do things that I otherwise would not have had the opportunity to do. My LLC experience allowed me to create friendships that have lasted throughout my college career and will definitely continue after I graduate.”
