>>> Faculty Highlight <<< Join us in wishing a happy retirement to Associate Professor AMY ERNST!
Ms. Ernst’s career began as a featured dancer, touring internationally with the Lewitzky dance company for over a decade. After her work with the company, Amy was hired by the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Inglewood, California as a physical therapist for three and a half years. In 1995, after receiving her MFA in dance from the University of Washington-Seattle and teaching at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Ms. Ernst joined the UA School of Dance faculty. Amy has shared her insight and wisdom of dance with generations of young artists, teaching all levels of Modern Dance Technique and Choreography, Dance Injury Prevention, Dance Kinesiology, and Biomechanics for Dance.
During her time at the University of Arizona, Amy was a teacher, a choreographer, a mentor, a friend, and most importantly, family.
Congratulations Amy! We can’t thank you enough! 💗Photo: @bellalewitzkyfilm ...
