Spotlight on Guest Faculty: Susan Jaffe May 30, 2019 |

Susan Jaffe,
Dean of Dance at UNC School of the Arts

Declared by the New York Times as “America’s Quintessential American Ballerina” Susan Jaffe was a principal dancer of American Ballet Theatre and an international guest artist for 22 years. During her career, she developed a practice of meditation and found it uncovered habitual thought patterns that created obstacles to realizing her full potential as an artist. This realization set her on a path to discover and work with the tools that freed her as a human being and artist. She is looking forward to sharing these tools with dancers to help them on their journey.
