  • Adam Linder is a choreographer based between Berlin and Los Angeles, working both in theatre and visual art contexts. He has been developing a dance based  format he calls Choreographic Services since 2013. This aspect of his work is focused on underscoring real time and economic conditions that are integral to the discipline of  choreography. At Otis Linder will introduce this format both conceptually and practically, discussing why 'servicing' is the relevant way for his work to publicly engage.

If you submit the Exemption Affidavit Regarding Immunizations, you must still submit a record of a recent TB screening.

More information,  Immunization Form and Waiver Affidavit forms can be found here.

To enroll at Otis you must submit a record of MMR immunizations and a recent TB screening. The forms in the accompanying packet will help you fulfill this important requirement. All immunization forms must be received by Otis before the start of classes.

How to fulfill this requirement:

• Ask your doctor to fill out and sign/date Sections A and B of the Immunization Record form. It’s ready to submit to Otis.


• Fill out the top of the Immunization Record Form and attach a copy of your personal immunization record which shows the dates you received the two doses of the MMR vaccine and your recent TB screening. Submit the white Otis form and attached copy pages.

If your immunization record is incomplete:

Perhaps you have your MMR record, but no recent TB, or you have a recent TB but no MMR. You should visit your doctor or health clinic and have the required vaccinations or screening. The doctor will fill out and sign/date the white Otis form and you’ll be ready to submit.

MMR immunization exemption form:

You may claim an exemption from the MMR immunization for medical, religious or philosophical reasons. See the Exemption Affidavit in the packet of forms. To claim the exemption, completely fill out the Exemption Affidavit and sign it. You must still submit a record of a recent TB screening. Submit the exemption form and TB screening record together
