Both of Callahan’s books have been used as textbooks in university programs across the country. Based on the lessons learned from NCCI, Callahan conceived of, produced, and edited Dance From the Campus to the Real World (and Back Again): A Resource Guide for Artists, Faculty, and Students. As the culmination of four years of activity, this guide is designed to benefit faculty, administrators, and emerging and professional artists, as well as the next generation of dancers throughout the country. “Residencies 101” guides artists and faculty in planning and implementing projects. “Universities 101” guides those who are considering faculty positions on what to expect and ask. “Real World 101” orients young dancers (and faculty) to what life will be like once they graduate from college and begin a career.
We wrote a position paper for the Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography (MANCC), the national dance and choreographic research center based at the Florida State University, as it was setting the direction for its services to artists.
Our national study Choreography in the United States: A Comparative Study of Training and Support Systems explored the professional choreographic training opportunities currently available in the United States through college programs as well as select training methods in Europe.
We documented the success of residencies at university programs around the country through the NCCI program in three publications.
