Thursday, March 2, 2006 - 17:00

An article by Wesley Robert '04 about her experience with the Mount Holyoke dance program appeared in the Dance Magazine College Guide 2005/06. In the article, titled "What's the Pointe," Robert wrote about studying ballet under dance professors Rose Marie and Charles Flaches and choosing a college for its strong dance program even though she never planned on pursuing dance post-graduation.

Robert wrote: "Although my career goals point to law school, I wanted to go to a college with a good dance program, especially one strong in ballet. At Mount Holyoke College, I found an excellent English department as well as a ballet program that helped me improve my technique and ability beyond what I could have hoped for."

The issue also includes a reprint of an article from Dance Magazine'sMarch 2005 issue about the Five College Dance Department.
