Evan Schumacher

Instructor of Dance, Interlochen Arts Camp

Evan Schumacher is a student at Southern Methodist University studying dance and philosophy. He has studied many different forms of dance, but specializes in classical and contemporary ballet and partnering. Schumacher trained in ballet from the age of 4, but has since added many different forms to his training. His training started in his hometown Madison, WI, but most of his growth happened at Interlochen Arts Academy, where he trained in high school. While he was there, he was given the opportunity to perform incredible repertoire, including Paul Taylor's Company B, Agnes De Mille's Rodeo, and José Limón's A Choreographic Offering. Schumacher believes that dance as an art form can reach out and touch on ideas that cannot be expressed in words.
