The Capital Times published a Q&A with UW-Madison’s Duane Lee Holland Jr., a new assistant professor with the School of Education’s Dance Department. Holland, a native of Devon, Pennsylvania, tells the newspaper that he is excited to be the first hip-hop faculty member at the first university in the United States to grant degrees in dance. In 1926, under the leadership of Margaret H'Doubler, UW-Madison became the first university to offer a degree program in dance. “It goes along with the legacy of why the dance department was created here,” said Holland, who joined UW-Madison this semester.
