Bryn Mawr Online High School Dancer to Showcase Piece

Avily E., a student at the online, private high school Bryn Mawr Online (BMOS) and a dancer from the renowned School of American Ballet and Kanyok Arts Initiative (KAI) in NYC, will showcase an improvised, free dance to Dismantle by Peter Sandberg with the Bryn Mawr Upper School Dance Company this weekend. Watch a clip of her performance below.

Avily has danced in multiple New York City Ballet performances, including the Nutcracker and Midsummer Night’s Dream at Lincoln Center. She currently trains four days per week with KAI and takes classes in ballet, jazz, modern, hip hop, theater, and acting and voice coaching, which helps her develop a diverse range of movement and expression as an artist. Avily is able to bring a remarkable level of commitment and passion to her craft, which is supported by the flexibility of attending BMOS, an academically rigorous, online private school for girls. We look forward to seeing all that Avily accomplishes in both her academic and artistic pursuits.
Dancers, athletes and performing artists are among the many types of students who find success at Bryn Mawr Online thanks to the school’s flexibility and supportive community. Learn more about who thrives at Bryn Mawr Online.

What do you like about teaching online?
I like the small school environment, the ambitious students BMOS attracts, and the flexibility learning and teaching online affords students and faculty.

What do you like to do when you’re NOT in school?
Hike, travel, play frisbee, and spend time on the Jersey Shore.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Japan. My dad is half Japanese, and there is a rumor in our family that he and my aunt relinquished property rights to a small portion of a mountain in Japan. I’d like to go see that mountain.

Best way to spend a Saturday?
Reading outside.

What do you want students to remember about you?
I want them to remember that I did my best to make literature open up for them in surprising, intriguing ways and that I cared about their ideas.

Personal catchphrase?
“Let’s reflect on this.”

Who inspires you?
Writers I love: James Baldwin, Marilynne Robinson, Louise Erdrich, to name a few.

What activity/class have you enjoyed the most through BMOS (and why)?
The poet Sarah Ali visited our English 9 and 10 classes to discuss her poem about animal roadkill. The students asked great questions, and she gave thoughtful answers. We broached a topic that often feels too intractable to talk about.
