The Dell’Arte Alumni Association is back!

After a fantastic 40th Reunion in Blue Lake, we’re happy to announce the re-birth of the Dell’Arte Alumni Association. All graduates are automatically members. During the Reunion, many alums expressed interest in staying involved with the School and with each other more consistently, and the Alumni Association is a way to do just that. We’d like to establish chapters in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Minneapolis, Portland, and cities in Canada, as well as chapters in Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America.Your Alumni Association is a resource for connecting with other grads in your area and beyond, sharing contacts, information, work, stories and community.

Look who’s volunteered to be a regional coordinator:
Debbie McMahon, Los Angeles, CA

Alice Nelson, Western Canada
Lisa Anne Ross, Eastern Canada
Norah Sadava, Toronto, Canada
