As a teacher and trainer, I draw on my background in modern dance. While at Barnard College in NY, I began taking classes with the breathtaking artists of the Jose Limon Dance Company. I earned an MFA in dance from the Ohio State University, and have taught in professional and academic settings. My passion is performing, and I dance with the Deborah Abel Dance Company.
Since 2006, I have been a certified Gyrotonic trainer with a private practice, now located in Newton, MA. I am particularly drawn to the Gyrotonic Method of Exercise because it feels like dancing, with its emphasis on flowing and harmonious movements. I delight in sharing this amazing holistic system with people of all ages, levels, and abilities.
I have also taught movement/exercise at MIT Community Wellness, and independently, for over 20 years. To further inform my teaching, I continue to study and practice a wide array of mind/body disciplines, including the Gyrotonic® and GYROKINESIS® Methods and Bartenieff Fundamentals. Currently, I am becoming certified in the Franklin Method.
