Independent dance artist. For the past four decades has practiced, taught, and advocated for explorative methods of dance making. She danced with the Trisha Brown Dance Company from 1979–85. Currently performs solo and collaborative work, and teaches internationally. Recent performing includes dancing in Stephanie Skura’s Surreptitious Preparations for an Impossible Total Act; Elena Demyanenko and Erika Mijlin’s Echo Archive; and Promenade, a series of improvised durational performance/installations with visual artist Chris Crickmay and composer Sylvia Hallett. Her work is informed by improvisation and mindful body practices which engender trust in the body's innate capacity for ease, efficiency and integrated openness. A certified teacher of the Alexander Technique, she holds an MFA (Dance Research Fellow) from Bennington College, VT. The New York post-modern dance movement of the 1960's and 70’s has given her current dance practice a foundation of respect for the moving body, and a passion for creative process and experimentation.
