Molly Rogers, MFA

Molly uses her experience as a dance artist to design classes that centralize the body as both a learning tool and empathy-generator. Though she works primarily with the BFA dance majors, her course Politics of the Body in Motion is open to all DU students who are interested in learning about dance and bringing embodied awareness to social justice concepts. Molly designed and implemented the inaugural dance history curriculum at the Alonzo King LINES Ballet Training Program, where she serves on faculty teaching Critical Perspectives in Dance. She has worked as a lecturer in Dance at UC Irvine, as well as a guest speaker at St. Mary’s College and Sonoma State University discussing the work of Alonzo King. In addition to her academic teaching, Molly serves as an Integrative Coach and is honored to mentor students on their journey to self-realization during their transformative college years.
