MFA Director

Joshua Legg, M.F.A.

M.F.A. Program Director, Wilson College
Joshua’s choreography has been called “stunning, intense…an exciting interpretation of modern ballet.” Recognized for his diverse range (recent commissions include both dance and opera companies), he has presented works nationally earning grant support and honors on adjudicated concerts.

MFA Mentor Program

At Wilson, we are committed to providing our MFA candidates with deep mentorship throughout your time in the program. You will work closely with our MFA Director and guest faculty during the summer residency; and beginning in Fall 2017, our full-time faculty will visit students in their home studios for one-on-one mentoring sessions. During non-residency periods, you will work with professional mentors in your home studios.

MFA Curriculum

Most of the Wilson College MFA courses mix choreographers with visual artists to provide a broad interdisciplinary experience. Ample time is provided for medium-specific classroom and studio work as well. Of course, the home-based Independent Studio Work is quite specific to the discipline.
