Runa graduated from Washington and Lee University in 2021 with a double major in geology and politics, and a minor in dance. While at W&L, she presented work at the Center for Movement Research, Alvin Ailey Citigroup Theater, and Lenfest Center for the Arts in addition to interning with the Joffrey Ballet School. Following graduation, she worked at Moondance Adventures planning and guiding wilderness-based trips across the United States. Having collaborated with members of Shaleigh Dance Works and studied with Shaleigh Comerford at Washington and Lee, Runa was thrilled to join the team as SDW’s Executive Assistant.
“I am incredibly excited by the work SDW is doing to make dance a more inclusive and accessible artform. I look forward to the opportunity to be a part of this community and support these amazing dancers through an administrative role!” -Runa King
