In 2001, she won a Herald Angel Award for her dance In Situ in Edinburgh, Scotland. She teaches at Bryn Mawr and Swarthmore Colleges.
Whole Body Dancing
This class will focus on both subtle and full body awareness through the learning of phrases and improvisations that awaken and activate the body/mind.
With attention to breathe, alignment, inter-connection in the body as well as speed, rhythm, timing, this class will give students an opportunity to find new articulations, responsiveness, dimensionality and aliveness in their dancing.
