Does anyone have information on Bryn Mawr's dance classes?

It looks like teachers this fall will include Linda Mintzer and Meredith Rainey from Pennsylvania Ballet. Does anyone know either of these dancers as teachers?

Meredith Rainey used to be one of my weekly teachers at my old studio; he's one of my favorite teachers ever. He's much more about dancing and enjoying it, rather than harsh technique. I enjoyed every one of his classes.

Can anyone comment on the quality/rigor of the ballet program? DD is looking for a school that has rigorous academic programs as well as a decent ballet program.

I graduated from Bryn Mawr, but did not dance there. I knew people who did who enjoyed the classes and teachers. The dance department always put on very good performances, from what I remember. The studio is in an amazing location overlooking campus. I believe I read after I graduated about a student who was attending BMC while also training professionally with a nearby company, so that is an option.

Just bumping this up (hope that's okay) because BMC just posted one of their student blogs for this year that happens to be written by a dance major:
