As an interdisciplinary artist and educator, my work straddles many forms and techniques bridging the fields of dance and theatre, and I am devoted to interdisciplinary training between these fields as a means to develop the most comprehensive, creative expression in contemporary performance and performers today.
Whether teaching dance technique, choreography, improvisation, composition, dance history, writing for the stage, improvisational theatre, performance presence, original performance making, grant writing, production, arts administration, or mentoring students, I consistently bridge these fields, through my own practice and curriculum.
My work over the past nineteen years, as a dancer, performer, choreographer, director, writer, interdisciplinary educator and arts administrator offer a great width and breadth of knowledge, experience and perspective for young people in the field today. I especially encourage my students to develop their own dynamic and diverse artistic voices and visions. I believe that one of the most important aspects of contemporary performance today, is the ability of the artist to develop an articulate personal aesthetic, garnered through comprehensive, cross disciplinary learning, techniques, form-making, thinking.
