Music Meets Activism with Whitney Harris, director of SLCC Dance

"As full-time Performing Arts faculty and the director of the SLCC Dance program, Whitney Harris brings a unique flavor to SLCC. Whitney’s professional dance career spans nearly 20 years and includes productions, performances and choreography for the stage, TV, the internet, professional sports arenas and international cruise lines.

"Whitney studied dance as an undergraduate student at the University of Utah and received her M.Ed. from the University of Utah in 2013. Other passions of hers include social justice advocacy, equity in access and storytelling. It’s no wonder she calls teaching at SLCC her dream job; on a daily basis in this role she is able to tap into all those passions as well as skills her work has developed to engage with our beautifully diverse student body in a meaningful way through movement, the transmission of culture and the telling of the rich stories of our courageous students."
