Why Metro?

As an alumni, I was already familiar with the school and the outstanding work that we do at Metro Arts. I was drawn back by my continued proximity to the school, dancing with Scorpius Dance Theater. As soon as I heard that there was a position open at the school I jumped at the opportunity. I was immediately impressed by how much the school had grown and improved since I was a student here. Part of the reason I have remained at Metro is due to the wonderful environment here- the staff members are pleasant and professional, the administrative team is supportive, and the students are so talented and a delight to work with.
