New York City Ballet alum Silas Farley, 26, is named Dean

Postby AfricanMustang » Wed Feb 24, 2021 5:08 pm

Silas Farley was 9 when he joined a scholarship program for young male dancers at the North Carolina Dance Theatre School of Dance, created by then-director Darleen Callaghan.

Quickly recognizing his talent, Callaghan encouraged Farley to begin choreographing at 11 and teaching other dance students at 13.

Now, Farley and Callaghan will be reunited to run Colburn School’s Trudl Zipper Dance Institute, the Los Angeles performing arts institution announced Wednesday. Farley, 26, will become dean of the dance institute, and Callaghan, 62, will become associate dean.

The two will start in July and will replace Dean Jenifer Ringer and Associate Dean James Fayette, the married couple who began working at the Colburn School in 2014.

The role seemed like a perfect next step after retiring from the stage and becoming the ballet artist-in-residence in the dance division at Southern Methodist University’s Meadows School of the Arts.

I hope Meadows can find a suitable replacement for him!
