I have recently been in contact with the wellness program coordinator and dance coordinator at RIT about teaching a vintage jazz dance course. After several weeks of little response from them, I finally got some sort of result. The RIT wellness team has their next meeting in August where new courses are proposed. Since the fall schedule is completely booked, the earliest they could offer this course would be in the winter (what I expected). Both people I have contacted are on board for the class idea, even though they haven’t put any further thought into how I will be able to get on payroll and have access to staff resources. The wellness coordinator promised she would not forget about the class and would discuss it with the rest of the board in August.
I’m pretty happy that this idea is not being thrown aside just because I’m a student. Now we wait until August.
