Amy O’Neal Guest Artist at Mills College this Fall

August 13, 2015

Amy O is excited to announce that she has accepted a Guest Artist position at Mills College in Oakland, CA for the Fall semester. She will be teaching daily Contemporary Technique classes, setting a new work on Mills Repertory Company, and teaching a Street Dance course. In an effort to deepen the knowledge of the history and evolution of the stylistic and cultural diversity in what the mainstream calls Hip Hop dance, Amy will collaborate with local Bay Area innovators of popping, locking, breaking, waaking, house and hip hop styles to facilitate a dialogue with Mills students. As an artist who is deeply connected to both contemporary dance and street dance culture, Amy is thrilled to be in a position where her vast experience can help evolve the way these dance forms are approached in an academic setting.
