Year in Review

LAST BLOG OF THE YEAR! It’s hard to believe that this is the last blog of the school year! I have had such an amazing time blogging my experiences at Juilliard for the last two years.

YEAR IN REVIEW

This was a very good year for me in terms of artistic and personal growth. I have been very lucky to have been given many opportunities this year to showcase the scope of my range as an actress being given at least three roles to play in each of all the three productions we had this year (Top Girls, Queens Boulevard and Romeo & Juliet).

Reflecting on the year

Today I traveled to a tiny park in the upper boroughs of New York to make a film of a piece I created with three dancers and a composer back in November. During the impossibly long commute one of the dancers asked me: “So how was this year for you?” I was speechless.

One for the Books

This year has truly been one for the books. Seriously! I feel like I say that every year, (which I guess is a good thing in a way) but this year has brought with it such a plethora of challenges, learning opportunities, moments of joy, and moments of growth.

Summer Plans

SUMMER IS HERE AND I AM READY TO RELAX! After this busy, wonderful, crazy, action-packed, sweet second year at Juilliard, summer seems like a brilliant light that is just around the corner and I CANNOT WAIT.

SUMMER!!!

Summer is fast approaching! I’m so excited to have some time off to see friends, work on new music, and more!

SUMMER WISH-LIST!

We have opened Romeo and Juliet at the Stephanie P. McClelland Drama Theater last Tuesday, May 1, 2018. We have three shows left and I catch myself daydreaming about summer every now and then (not during a scene, of course).

Summer plans!

I am entering my last summer before I become a senior. For me that means that this is the last time I will have a true summer- one that feels like free time to explore outside of school before looking for a job!

Summer Detox

It’s almost painful to be thinking about summer when we still have juries and finals to go, but the summer mood is definitely creeping up on the Juilliard community.

Big Plans

Summer is almost upon us (it’s about time if I do say so myself) and I’m happy to say that (for the most part) I’ve gotten my summer plans in order.

WINDING DOWN FOR THE SCHOOL YEAR

We’ve got two and a half weeks to go before the end of the school year! My class (Drama Group 48) is currently in tech and dress rehearsals for our respective Shakespeare shows: Romeo & Juliet and Richard II.

Juries and Exams

It’s finally that time of year again – Juilliard students are ready to head home for summer vacation but not before taking our final exams and performing our juries.

THE END IS NEAR

We’re rapidly approaching the end of another busy but productive year, and now it’s time to start focusing on juries and finals. For the music majors, the last two weeks of school are jury week and finals week.

Winding Down

The end of the year is a bizarre balance of enjoying spring weather and the abundance of NYC events, and juggling performance commitments and exams at school. I find that one day I am completely relaxed wandering the Whitney and enjoying a peer’s graduation recital, and the next I am cramming for an exam and trying to remember choreography from November.

End of Year Wind-Down

My oh my, it has been such a long time coming... I've definitely grown since my freshman year and am starting to realize that life is a long journey of self-discovery.

Crescendo

The end of the year is always a funny thing. You see, there comes a point in mid-March (when we’re all overwhelmed with midterms, spring performances, rehearsals for choreographic workshop, and more) that I browse forward in my schedule to late April and early May. And I look with amazement and awe at how much free time I’ll have!
