Gallim Dance is proud to congratulate Artistic Director & Choreographer Andrea Miller on being named a 2014 Guggenheim Fellow by the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.
The Guggenheim Fellowship honors both past achievement and exceptional promise for future accomplishment. Since its establishment in 1925, the Foundation has granted Fellowships to more than 17,500 individuals; among whom are Nobel laureates and winners of Pulitzer Prizes, Fields Medals, and other internationally-recognized honors. Choreographers such as Martha Graham, Alvin Ailey, Mark Morris, Trisha Brown, Twyla Tharp, and Ronald K. Brown are past recipients of the Fellowship.
I would like to share warmest thanks with the Gallim dancers, current and past administrative teams, as well as the many individuals, presenters, commissioners, partners, donors, and foundations who have provided me with tremendous support, creativity and inspiration.
I extend a very special recognition to the Friends of Gallim Dance for their extraordinary belief in me: Frederic M. Seegal, Chairman, James H. Herbert, II, Jonathan Ledecky, David R. Parker, Michael J. Rosenthal, Irena Tocino, and Shannon Houston. And to my parents and my beautiful family Juan, Mateo and Raquel, for your unconditional love and support.
