An inside look: ABT Studio Company

Mount Holyoke College

In January 2017, the prestigious American Ballet Theatre Studio Company, comprised of dancers ages 16 – 20, came to perform at Mount Holyoke. In addition to performing three shows that included U.S. and world premieres, the company also held a master class for advanced Mount Holyoke dancers.

Emily Clark ’18, a double major in dance and biology from Westford, Massachusetts, chronicled the Studio Company’s visit for the Mount Holyoke community via an Instagram takeover — from the Mount Holyoke dance studios to the stage and the light booth. For a behind-the-scenes adventure in dance, check out Clark’s Storify below!
