Alyah Baker, T'03, Dancer and Choreographer

"Dance at Duke gave me a chance to explore and grow in ways that are not always encouraged in an academic setting. It was a safe atmosphere where creativity was encouraged, where exploration was championed, and where artistry was honed. Every time I entered the studio for technique class or one of many rehearsals, I knew that I was in for an experience that was not only shaping me as a dancer, but as a person. Because of my Duke experience I am living my dream of being a professional dancer today!"
