Charles O. Anderson is on the faculty at the University of Austin.
Charles O. Anderson was my mentor at Muhlenberg and for a few years afterward.
Charles O. Anderson laughed at me when I missed his class for an audition in New York. He shook his head and said, "Jessica, you'll do almost anything to dance, won't you?" So? What's wrong with that? "Just be careful. You'll figure it out." Charles O. Anderson always gave me direction, but also always told me that I'd figure it out.
I'm still figuring it out.
Charles O. Anderson is the reason why I moved to Philly. Shortly after my undergarduate career had ended, I found myself alone in a foreign city, teaching, dancing, but completely confused and not happy. In a panic, I contacted those I most trusted. Charles provided me with some suggestions, one of which was to re-locate to Philly. And I'm still figuring the rest out, but I'm grateful for his advice.
Charles O. Anderson is returning to Philly for one day only - tomorrow, Sunday June 9th. He's giving a master class at CHI MAC.
