B.F.A. in Dance Candidate
Why did you choose UT Austin for your education?
UT Austin's program offered me the most freedom in my education, as well as diversity within the dance program. I have professors' support in pursuing degrees in dance and public relations. Though The University of Texas at Austin is a huge school, the Department of Theatre and Dance made it much smaller, which is something I looked for in my college decision.
What inspires you?
Suffering pushes me to continue my passions in dance and communication; I aspire to lessen suffering as much as possible through the art of dance and dialogue.
What is your favorite place to study?
I enjoy studying in quiet coffee shops.
Tell us about a favorite experience in class, on stage, or behind the scenes at UT.
When I was on costume crew for Production Lab, I loved watching the upperclassmen from backstage. It is one of my favorite experiences, because I caught a glimpse of what my next three years could look like.
What do you love most about being part of the UT Theatre and Dance family?
As a family we are all very peculiar and weird, since we love to express ourselves. We are very open-minded and accepting, which is my favorite part of this group.
Ginnifer Joe began dancing at the ripe age of two. As the daughter of a dance teacher, dance classes also served as babysitting time during her childhood. She is a second-year B.F.A. dance major at The University of Texas at Austin and she loves this new family. She dreams to create a global dance company that transcends all human barriers; a company that intertwines and accepts cultural differences and celebrates life and human existence.
