About

I’m Mary (aka “The Dance Journalist”): a professional dancer and freelance writer based in New York City.  I graduated with a self-designed degree in Writing Dance from NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study and am currently pursuing my master’s in Performing Arts Administration at NYU’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development.

The challenge of writing about dance-such an ephemeral art form-is thrilling. I’ve written reviews, interviews, blog posts, press releases, advice columns, and essays about all things dance.  I hope that my writing can inspire artists to explore new ideas,  audiences to think critically about their experiences in the theatre, and donors and all levels of government to support and promote the arts.
