Teaching Fellow in Dance

Contact & Office Hours


Anna M. Maynard’s creative inquiries span the media of improvisation, photography and performance art in works that probe the dynamics of interpersonal relations in dialogue with the world. She leads explorations of the concepts of accessibility, community, structures of power and body politics.

With a foundation in classical ballet and an aesthetic identity anchored in contemporary dance, Maynard regularly attended the American Dance Festival and studied with Amanda K. Miller, Ishmael-Houston Jones, Jesse Zaritt, Gerri Houlihan and Jodi Melnick.

Over the last year, Anna taught Contact Improvisation and researched the expansion of social norms in this dance form while traveling through Europe and Central America.
