Jacksonville University graduates first class in lauded MFA in Choreography program

When they made their way across the stage May 5 to receive their diplomas, these Jacksonville University graduates made a little history, too.

They were part of the first graduating class of JU’s prestigious MFA in Choreography program, one of only a handful nationwide whose low-residency approach lets mid-career artists continue their professional lives while advancing their knowledge in performance and choreography.

“This program expanded my mind and perspective in terms of thinking about my career and potential,” said an excited Michelle Grant Murray, one of 10 graduates of the program, who teaches dance in Miami and has directed shows as far away as Japan. “It gave me the opportunity to meet new people and go to new places. It’s amazing, the amount of freedom to explore your processes without having everything superimposed on you.”
