During the week of March 31, 1990, Wendy Taucher, second from left, taught drama students to move with expression and precision. She was one of four visiting artists working with students from East and West McDowell Junior High Schools during that week. Taucher was an award-winning choreographer from New York City. The artists and students held a lecture/presentation during that week at East’s auditorium. This was the last of the month-long artist-in-school residences that year in McDowell County.
