Winterfest Retrospective Performance
Alumni traveled from as far away as California to honor Gerri Houlihan at the Florida Dance Festival’s WINTERFEST on Thursday December 30, at the New World Dance Theater. Ms. Houlihan was the first full-time faculty member employed at New World School of the Arts Dance Division. Ms Houlihan taught and choreographed at New World from 1988 to 1999. During that time she formed a company, HOULIHAN AND DANCERS, using students and local dancers. She is presently Dean of the American Dance Festival and teaches at Florida State University. The sold out performance was attended by many friends and alumni of the New World School of the Arts dance program and Houlihan and Dancers.
