With a multifaceted dance and theatrical design background, I have produced, performed, and designed lighting, scenery, and costume for professional and academic dance concerts, and have toured performances in California, Montana, Massachusetts, Oregon, Utah, and Vermont. Receiving national recognition for my choreography and numerous awards for excellence, I have presented at regional and national academic dance arts events. My productions include dancers of all ages and abilities, and this skill of working with the individual is evident in my classes and private instruction.
As a choreographer and movement coach, I teach the style and technique needed for the whole body, including character interpretation for the specific production through the lenses of Laban and the Delsarte System of Expression. I teach classes and private sessions in Pilates (Reformer and Mat), Integrative movement, Bartenieff Fundamentals, and Ballet Barre for adults, and am expanding my practice to include phone and Skype-like virtual studio teaching platforms.
And because your skin tells so much about you, I help you manage your natural complexion with at-home skincare practices which 'clean the slate' of signs of pre-mature aging, making it easier for your production make-up artists to enhance your character.
