For years, I thought my body didn't belong in movement, dance, and physical theater classrooms. Now I seek and make opportunities to lead them.
A balance of functional and expressive physical exploration helped bring my body back into the studio, since which time I have come to discover that not only is my artistry served by my work in movement, but I have a passion for helping others overcome their own presuppositions about what kinds of stories their body is allowed and able to tell.
My movement background is rooted in the work of Trish Arnold, John Broome, historical dance, and Lecoq Technique, and is ever growing to include Bartenieff Fundamentals, Laban Movement Analysis, proprioceptive approaches to the voice, and somatic therapeutic approaches including BodyMind Dancing with Dr. Martha Eddy, and Body-Mind Centering with Bonnie Bainbridge-Cohen.
A new workshop, Embodied Speaking, is currently in development. Learn more.
