Every year in the Spring, Avant + Garde selects an individual who will be graduating from the company the next Fall/Spring season to be the Student Artistic Associate. This individual will demonstrate not only great dancing ability, but also have leadership capabilities, and be willing to grow into the role as the year progresses. The directors select the Student Artistic Associate the year prior to them stepping into the role, so they can shadow the current Student Artistic Associate, and “learn the ropes”.
This year, the directors selected Jamie Anderson. Please congratulate her on this great achievement!
