This list is by no means complete. It merely highlights of the activities of some of our graduates. Also, dancers are always moving, and contact information and career details are challenging to keep current.

When Heidi first arrived at UM she felt a little different with her Kabuki Dance background. Her three years of training there enhanced her bi-cultural being as a dancer and choreographer. Since then she has had the opportunity to return as an alum to teach and share her dance. Heidi’s continuous exchanges with Jessica Fogel have been rewarding. She continues to pursue dance, which takes her to amazing places in the world to share with people and their culture. Heidi has danced 47 years and has 53 more to go!
