“I am not here to make you feel foolish, unattractive, or less than a miracle.”
– Deborah Hay
This quote encompasses my belief in what I see as an essential piece to being an effective instructor. Wherever I teach, I adapt to the needs of my students; either emphasizing technique as a practice of care for the body, or emphasizing the need to expand the body’s vocabulary beyond set technique. I teach all ages, pre-school to adult, and all dance backgrounds, beginner to professional.
I am currently on faculty at:
