We asked The University of Arizona School of Dance alumna Erina Ueda (BFA ‘21, Dance) ...

What have you been up to?

I’m currently a professional dancer with the Giordano Dance Chicago, America’s original jazz dance company in Chicago, Illinois. It has been a magical experience so far being a part of their legacy, representing as their first Asian dancer, performing at Jay Pritzker Pavilion, Harris Theater and the Auditorium Theatre, and touring around the state & country. This spring, I was invited to be interviewed by the Consultant General of Japan in Chicago.

Not only I work as a professional dancer, but I work as a social media consultant and a videographer for the GDC. I also teach dance classes: ballet, jazz, tap and acrobat, at many different studios in the city, as well as being invited to teach at summer intensives and master classes from other states.

It has been a whole new world, a dream come true, and I cannot wait to continue learning and growing, become stronger, and perform with the incredible Giordano Dance Chicago, who I call my family, as we enter our 60th season!

It is such an honor to be recognized by you. Thank you so much for reaching out; I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for the experience I had at UofA ❤️💙

Here's Assistant Professor of Practice Darnell T. Roulhac in his "The Room Where it Happens: Guide to Auditioning Successfully" workshop at the International Thespian Festival 2022!

"The Room Where it Happens" is a masterclass-style workshop to better prepare young singers as they are auditioning for schools and shows. Participants get tips on how to pick impactful songs as well as how to get the attention of the panel one's performing for. They will also discuss 32-bar cuts and what else one should have prepared.

Hosted at Indiana University, the festival is a celebration of school theatre and gathers thespians from around the globe for performances, workshops, and college auditions!
