University of Iowa

Emily Climer  composes dances that try to expose how groups of people make decisions collectively. She is currently pursuing an MFA at the University of Iowa and teaching undergraduate dance courses. Prior to that, Emily worked for two years on the literacy team of Student Achievement Partners, a nonprofit of educators and researchers designing actions to try to improve student achievement in the U.S. Emily is deeply interested in how the mediation, communication, and adaptive structuring processes she has learned through her dance making translate to work in social systems. She received her undergraduate degree from Bennington College.
