Harriet Ross (B.S. ’61, dance) spoke with dance students about the importanceof networking and staying in touch with their Juilliard family. She also told them that it’s not too early to start thinking about their future careers after actively dancing.

Also that month (not pictured), a workshop called Keep It Classy featured tips on not conflating partying and networking. Panelists were Phoebe Dunn (Group 42), Ingrid Kapteyn (B.F.A. ’13, dance) and Benjamin Sosland (M.M. ’03, D.M.A. ’08, voice), the assistant dean for the Kovner Fellowships and the administrative director of Historical Performance. All three agreed that sometimes people can be more critical of you outside of your art, and that it’s important to recognize this and to use one’s best judgment. Sosland summed up by saying “the performance doesn’t stop once you leave the stage—you’re always performing and therefore people are always watching you.”
