Prof. John Wilson retires from UA dance department after 25 years of teaching
John Wilson, a professor of dance at the UA, is preparing to say goodbye to the dance division and hello to retirement at the end of this semester.
During his 25 years at the University of Arizona and 40 years teaching college dance, Wilson has created 96 ballets.
Three of these were choreographed for this year, including "Heritage of Earth," which was showcased at the "Premium Blend" dance concert, and "Indri's Dream," which was re-enacted for the Arizona Arts Odyssey Festival.
He dedicates many of his pieces to family members because of their continued support throughout his career.
