Teaching Philosophy

I am obsessed with the art of teaching movement.  I nurture thinking, creative, opinionated dancers and choreographers.   I help budding artists and movers find a sense of their own skills and questions and tools for developing further.  I believe that learning to move and learning to create impact every aspect of life, that teaching dance is a political act.

Right now I teach at Princeton University and love it!  Previous work included three years at Lehman College in the Bronx and five years teaching and assistant coordinating for the graduate-level Certificate Program at the Laban/ Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies as well as workshops for ClassClassClass, courses for students ages 4-80, master classes in Sao Paolo, Brazil, and substitute teaching for pre-professional students at North Carolina School of the Arts.
