About Me:

My name is Olivia and I am a senior at Butler University. I spend most of my time in Lilly Hall as a BFA Dance Performance major. When not in rehearsal or ballet class, I write papers for my English Literature second major. In my super-abundant, never-lacking, this-is-highly-sarcastic spare time, I attempt to cook in my apartment kitchen, watch Youtube videos of ballet, knit sweaters that never seem to come to an end, and read books both silly and serious. If I could take any class at Butler just for kicks, I'd go for DiffyQ.

Sophomore Dance Major

Of all my years, the sophomore dance schedule was the most challenging for me. Sophomore year is tough overall. I have the theory that it’s the weed-out year. If you are not happy taking so many dance classes, then a dancing career probably is not the right choice. I would want to learn that sort of thing about myself sooner rather than later.

When I was a sophomore I took:

  • Ballet Technique (2 semesters)
  • Modern Technique (2 semesters)
  • Jazz Technique (2 semesters)
  • Pointe (2 semesters)
  • Improvisation (2 semesters)
  • Spanish and Slavic Character (1 semester each)
  • Music Theory for Dance (2 semesters)
  • Choreography 1
  • Laban Movement Analysis
  • Piano
  • Voice class (2 semesters)
  • Butler Ballet (2 semesters)
  • Costuming class
  • GHS — Global and Historical Studies (2 semesters)
  • American Lit 1
  • Intro to Acting
  • Honors Class: A Brief History of Love and Friendship
  • British Lit 2

Basically, sophomore year was crazy. If you meet a sophomore dance major today, give him or her a hug. I’m told the School of Music is the same way. Sophomore year in the JCFA must be the equivalent of COPHS clusters. Maybe?

Laban class, unite!
