GRADUATE STUDENT PROFILES
Meredith Lyons, 2008
"I had a wonderful experience getting my grad degree at Smith. I was able to solely focus on myself for 2 years; taking technique classes, teaching a variety of dance classes and performing a ton. I involved myself in all of the FCDD by taking classes and using the faculty as resources. I continually added to my plate, trying to take every opportunity available. One thing I took away from Smith is that I now can confidently speak my voice as an artist."
