Staffing Update


We are very sad to announce that Bonnie Gloris, who so many of you have gotten to know and appreciate over the last four years, has moved on from American Dance Abroad to pursue her visual arts passion.  Aside from the great work she did for us on your behalf, Bonnie is a working visual artist in her own right.  We will miss her, and wish her great success in her future!

Bonnie contributed so much to American Dance Abroad. We will sustain those projects she initiated, such as this newsletter. Of course, she is not 100% gone because she will continue to oversee the publication of Pitchbook for now.  Communication for the Newsletter should now be directed to Emily McCoy at All other information that would have gone to Bonnie should now be directed to  

Bonnie's American Dance Abroad email remains active, and we are certain that she would appreciate hearing your good wishes!
