Hail & Farewell: Raegan Wood, International Advisor

Congratulations Raegan Wood!
Peridance Capezio Center's International Advisor
on the cover of...
DanceTeacher Magazine

March 2012 issue of DanceTeacher Magazine honored Raegan Wood's
excellence in children's dance education.  

For two years Raegan Wood worked with hundreds of Peridance Capezio Center's diverse group of international students.  For 25 years, she taught dance in the tri-state area and throughout the nation -- in private studios, K-12 public and private schools, preparatory, and community centers, as well as numerous colleges and universities including Barnard, Rutgers University and Juilliard.

Since birth, when her mother went into labor while teaching a class in Graham technique (both parents were dancers), Raegan has been driven to dance.  She was a soloist in the Paul Taylor Dance Company (1982-1989), and after completing her Masters at Temple University she approached Paul Taylor about starting a Youth Program at The Taylor School.

This summer, Raegan now goes on to new adventures at The Taylor School, though her impact and presence at Peridance will be missed and truly felt.
