I'm very involved in Sweet Briar's dance program, but the Magruders (our dance professors) are extremely close minded. If you're a ballet dancer, like myself, good luck trying to get them to accept that. And God forbid if you're into musical theatre, because they really hate that. If I weren't involved in other departments there is no way I would stay at this school. But the musical theatre department is amazing and I'm so glad I chose that program. I plan on being a dance therapist, so I'm heavily involved in the psych department which has great faculty as well.

Basically, the Magruders are outdated teachers. I'd like to say they were "has-beens" but they're more "never-was". If you come into the program it's important to stick to your guns when it comes to what you like to dance and you'll be fine.
