About

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

Mary has written reviews, interviews, blog posts, press releases, advice columns, and essays about dance.  She hopes that her 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.
