Teague Harvey ’19

New Plymouth, New Zealand

Tricking, Tumbling, Acrobatic Movement, Dance, Circus, Rock Climbing, Music, Nature, Malaphors.

Hey reader!

My name is Teague (he/him/his), and I’m what you might call a ‘Third Culture Kid’.

My dad worked abroad for a while as a child psychologist in the US military, so I was born in Germany, lived in Sicily for a few years, and then grew up in New Zealand from when I was 7 until I was 18.

At Oberlin, I found my identity and community through movement – I’m the Captain of the Tumbling Club, and I’m involved in OCircus!, the rock climbing community, Koreo (a hip hop dance group), the swing & blues dancing scenes, and the Dance department.

I also eat in Kosher-Halal Co-op, teach children’s circus classes, work as an RA, and most importantly: write for the Oberlin Blogs!

For the start of my glorious Summer of Movement™, I headed to Brooklyn, New York, couch hopped for three weeks, and took just about every single class offered at the Brooklyn Zoo Gym: Parkour, Tricking, Breakdancing, Bar Conditioning, Contortion, etc.

This past semester, I 'sophomore slumped' hard. I struggled with intense feelings of depression, disconnection, and nihilism, and I critically questioned who I am, who I want to be, and where my place is in the world.
