Dean of the Faculty
Paul Matteson
Five College Assistant Professor of Dance
(Amherst and Mount Holyoke)

“I have spent the last four years performing and touring with The Bill T. Jones / Arnie Zane Dance Company.  I now plan to immerse myself in the Five College community and focus on my own choreographic collaborative explorations.  Dancing in college for me was transformative, extending out to all ways of being in the world.  I look forward to the exchange with students who are similarly open to and excited by dancing and dance making investigations.  I will be teaching technique, improvisation, partnering possibilities, and repertory and am currently at work on a new evening length piece that collides text and movement.”
