IUP alumnus Nathan Hart danced in many IUP Dance Theater productions while pursuing his degree. Now he's dancing onto the award platform to receive his “Teacher of the Year” award. Hart has been a dancer and dance instructor for almost two decades, since studying with Holly Boda-Sutton and Joan Van Dyke.
He's been able to use the unique interdisciplinary learning and pedagogy training he received from their program to stand out among his peers.
Hart remarked that he's, “overwhelmingly humbled to find out that I've
been named PA’s Dance Teacher of the Year by the PA State Association
for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance. Dance has been my
world since my first class at IUP 21(!!!) years ago.”
