TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

I believe in the notion of experimentation and curiosity. Participants in my classes are encouraged to ask questions, discuss and dig deeper. I use the tool of improvisation as a means of exploring bodily/mental awareness, mindfulness, composition and artistic agency. Classes tap into contemporary and post modern dance technique but are not always (or usually) formatted in a traditional way with exercises and repertoire as a core focus. We take the principles of modern and contemporary dance- weight, anatomy, quality, polyrhythms, gesture and theme and will create, pull apart, break down, rearrange, and create again. I believe in dance as a holistic practice- engaging all sensations and bodily systems. It’s an opportunity to explore within oneself, but also an opportunity to tap into the safety and uniqueness of community. I am currently teaching all levels- both adults and children and my classes do not require previous technique or experience-just willingness in mind and body.
