The Department of Dance will welcome its first Fulbright-Roehampton Scholar, funded by the US-UK Fulbright Commission this September.

Originally from Salt Lake City, Utah in the USA, Jessie Metcalf graduated Summa Cum Laude from Southern Utah University with a Bachelors of Science degree in Dance Performance. After seven years travelling the world as a professional cruise ship dancer, she has chosen to pursue a Master of Arts degree in Dance Studies.

"The program at Roehampton is well rounded with a unique variety of course work and a strong emphasis on writing. There are few other programs in the world that so greatly focus on detailed analysis of dance and its social impact," she said.

These are tools she hopes to engage while teaching emerging young dancers in the future.
