|Emily Feller graduated from the University of Montana in 2008 with a BFA in Dance Education and Choreography/Performance. During her time at UM, she was fortunate to have many different choreographing and performing opportunities, but her favorite was being a member of The CoMotion Dance Project which brought with it the gift of touring dance around Montana. Who would have thought that her final performance, at Bigfork Elementary, would be at the very school where she would serve as a MoDE dance educator a few years later! Integrating dance with core curriculum has been incredibly rewarding for Mrs. Feller, who is deeply committed to exploring how dance be taught to students for academic learning.|
