DHC Orientation Week

The Dance Heritage Coalition (DHC) Fellow’s Orientation Week took place in Chicago earlier this month. The orientation was a wonderful opportunity to get to know fellow cohorts, as well as Imogen Smith and Amanda Wick whom have been involved with preparing, organizing, and coordinating the fellowship. Our agenda was jam-packed with professional development sessions and workshops including a group assessment of the Thodos Dance Chicago’s archival materials, exciting tours of the Chicago Film Archive and the Newberry Library Archive, Conservation Lab, and Collections (The Ann Barzel Dance Research Collection was a real gem). On our final night, we had a farewell dinner at the Russian Tea Time followed by a performance by Jennifer Monson in “Living Dance Archive” at the Columbia College’s Dance Center.

It’s hard to believe that nearly two weeks has passed since the orientation in Chicago. It’s been a bit of a whirlwind since returning to Los Angeles with completing finals, moving preparations, and graduation celebrations. But now that the dust has settled a bit and have officially received my MLIS from UCLA, I am eager to begin my fellowship with the Ohio State University Libraries Theatre Research Institute and the Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design (ACCAD) on Monday! More to come on my fellowship in the next couple of weeks…
