CCSRE Life Stories: Penny Campbell

Learn more about the Comparative Study of Race and Ethnicity at Middlebury College.

“Life Stories of Middlebury College” is a multi-phase initiative intended to gather people’s experiences while at the college, particularly reflections that highlight issues of diversity. In her interview,  Penny Campbell talks about the circuitous route she took to Middlebury, from Bennington College where she became inspired to pursue improvisational dance, to bus driving and protesting in Burlington, living and dancing in Japan, gathering all the dancers in Vermont and finally becoming part of the Dance faculty at Middlebury.  Over the years she has learned Spanish, traveled to Cuba and the Dominican Republic; improvisational dance has its root in Black and African culture – hip hop in particular influences modern dance and that is where her interests lie.
