Keely Song Glenn
Being pregnant felt like a door closing on a big part of her life and identity, says dance professor Keely Song Glenn (BA ’08). She remembers not knowing how to “navigate moving from a dance identity to then a dance-and-a-mother identity.”

Now a mother of three, she’s found that mother and dancer aren’t mutually exclusive roles, and she’s opening the door for other expecting mothers to keep dancing. Last March Glenn choreographed a dance titled “Claim” and brought together seven pregnant dancers at BYU to perform it.

Assistant Professor of Dance Rachel Barker couldn’t wait any longer to premiere the release of her new dance film, Sedimented Here. So she created a pre-release trailer — just a sample of the dancing and depth — to show off her students and the amazing cinematography in her project!
