Teaching

I have served on the faculties of Pasadena City College, Ball State University, Trinity College, and University of Indianapolis as well as conducting master classes and workshops across the United States.

My students often walk into class believing that dance is simple, pretty, entertaining, and individual. It is my job to help them realize and embrace the consequence and power they possess as moving bodies in the world. I achieve this by providing a classroom grounded in curiosity and transparency. In all of my courses we approach scholarly investigation as continuous with creative work, and move fluidly between the two.  In my technique classes we move between practice and analysis. We endeavor to be fully embodied in our dancing while simultaneously understanding the goals, principles, and contexts behind what we are doing.
