Youth instructor offering private lessons in contemporary dance & choreography in Mill Valley

Methodology

I teach contemporary forms, ballet, improvisation, and choreography to youth K-12 and adults interested in exploring how movement connects with language, nature, sensation, and our daily lives. Students will have the opportunity to learn choreography for a film project that explores the intersections of poetry and creative process.

Background

I have served as a youth instructor at RoCo Dance for 1+ years, and guest-teach in-person and online at The Writers Nest and Camp Funderblast. I graduated with a B.F.A. in Dance from NYU Tisch School of the Arts, where I trained in contemporary forms, improvisation, and ballet, presented 7+ contemporary dance works for stage and choreographed 4+ works for film.
