What is your favorite thing about majoring in dance at the UW?

My favorite thing about majoring in dance at UW is the small community it provides you.  It helps make such a large university feel smaller by providing a group of like-minded individuals who share the same passion as you.  

Why did you choose to major in dance?

I chose to major in dance because I have never not been dancing during my life.  I couldn’t imagine not studying it in college.  Additionally, it balances my STEM heavy schedule and helps me destress from my rigorous pre-med courses.  

What are your goals for post-graduation? 

I plan to attend medical school after graduating from UW in order to become a cardiothoracic surgeon.  

What advice would you offer to students considering the dance major? 

If you are having trouble trying to find a way to do a double major or a dual degree in dance, go to advising.  Kelly has helped me so much and has always been so encouraging and supportive in planning out my schedule and in navigating how to pursue a dual degree.
