Reed Wins $800K Grant for Dance
Reed has won an $800,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to strengthen its dance program with additional classes, workshops, and more. “I am thrilled by what the Mellon Foundation's support will mean for dance at Reed,” says Prof. Carla Mann ’81 [dance 1995–].
The grant will allow the college to expand faculty positions in the dance department from 2 to 2.5, enabling professors to teach 12–13 courses a year. It also sets the stage for us to offer a dance major—something Reed dancers have long hoped for.
