About the Center's Leadership


Associate Professor Amy Yopp Sullivan, developed the idea for The Center for Dance, Movement and Somatic Learning as an incubator for creativity, research, education, performance and community connections. The Center operates as an independent center at Stony Brook University in the College of Arts and Sciences. The Center’s vision encompasses a drive to develop heightened interdisciplinary thinking and action, developed through the study of dance and movement arts, and applied through art-making, innovation and performance of all kinds. The Center is interested and primed to collaborate with a wide range of academic disciplines and community interests.
