Students from Vassar Repertory Dance Theater performed five private shows at the Lincoln Center Institute’s Clark Studio, the first New York City tour the group made. Alumni, family members, President Fergusson and her guests were invited to see the performances for free. Director of Development for Regional Programs John Mihaly ‘74  wanted to connect the alumnae and alumni with the students, so he held a reception before each performance where the dancers and audience could meet and mingle. Mihaly hoped that the event would also serve as a “thank you” for the “people who have made Vassar College a priority, either philanthropically or as volunteers.”
