The human body is a powerful teacher, communicator, and a home for all that makes us who we are. Through moving our bodies, we discover more about ourselves, others and the world around us. 

My mission is to educate and empower movers of all kinds to discover their bodies in new ways through the art of dance. 

I am constantly fascinated by how every student, no matter their age or level of experience, has unique sensibilities and qualities of movement and performance. 

Everyone is a dancer. Everyone is a performer. 

I offer education in contemporary dance technique, improvisation, ballet for contemporary dancers, dance composition, Modern dance history, stretching and dance conditioning. I work with professional dancers, pre-professionals, teens, kids and adults. 

Methods/techniques I have experience in are and are influenced by are: Horton, Graham, Countertechnique, Forsythe Improvisation, Release technique, Yoga, Pilates, Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST), Alexander Technique.
