She teaches at various studios, colleges and festivals in the greater NY area, across the US and abroad. As a choreographer, she works with subtle and intricate movement, time and architecture. Her choreography is consistent with her teaching vision and work. It explores the endless possibilities that the body can reveal - spare and articulate, compositional, and evocative. Although mainly a solo artist, she also creates small and intimate dances. She is also a Zero Balancing senior faculty member and practitioner.
