Friends of Dance

 


Sally A. Radell Friends of Dance Scholarship

 

Emily Hammond received a Friends of Dance scholarship in 2012 (American Dance Festival) and 2013 (Bates Dance Festival).

 

The Sally A. Radell Friends of Dance Scholarship Program was established in 1996 to make summer dance study more accessible to Emory students. It enables a student to study either in the United States or abroad with notable practicing artists, dance programs, and dance companies of his or her choice.

In 2008 the scholarship was named the Sally A. Radell Friends of Dance Scholarship in honor of Sally Radell, the founding director of the Emory Dance Program, who also established the Friends of Dance organization during her tenure as the program director.

"Attending Bates Dance Festival this summer opened my eyes to new ideas and opportunities in my dance technique, compositional skills, and my future in dance." -Emily Hammond, Bates Dance Festival 2013

"Instead of ‘dance intensive’ I believe ‘dance retreat’ is a more apt name for my two weeks spent in Sorrento. The location cultivated a joyful yet relaxed atmosphere in the dance studio. The trip reminded me why I love to dance. I love how the energy in the studio builds over the course of a class. I love getting to the end of a combination and realizing that I nailed it. I love the support and encouragement between fellow dancers." -Natalie Eggert, Staibdance Summer Intensive in Italy, 2013

"My summer at ADF allowed me to expand and clarify my perspective of dance. The classes I took helped me change my mindset. It was heaven to be somewhere where my only responsibility was to immerse myself in everything and anything dance related. This summer was a time about learning how to make choices and allowing myself to have an opinion and a perspective." -Kala Seidenberg, American Dance Festival, 2011
