This program is not about who you know, so please do not struggle in trying to find someone to impress us.  Obtain a letter of recommendation from someone who can attest to the fact that you are pursuing directing or choreography as a career path, someone who knows your work as an artist.  A teacher, an actor or dancer you’ve worked with, a mentor, a designer – these are all good options as recommenders.   A recommendation from someone who knows you, your work, and your work ethic is what we’re looking for, not a successful friend of a friend.
