Dance and Creative Movement
About my Dance Background ...
A true lover of dance in its many forms, I have been dancing through life!
I began my dancing journey as a child where I studied Jazz and Tap since the age of five. Continuing my passion for movement, I danced my way through college at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA where I received a BFA in Photography as well as becoming a certified Art Teacher for grades Pre-K through 12. It was here where I expanded my dance experience with Modern, African and Brazilian styles of dance as well as Yoga. Throughout my five years in Philadephia, I worked at the Please Touch Museum where I created and taught workshops in creative movement, interactive storytelling and music and movement for children 18 months through age 7.
Returning back to CT I enrolled myself at the Graduate Institute where I took a new direction in dance and became a certified NIA Dance instructor in 2009 with Casey Bernstein at the Center for Nia and Yoga in Albany, NY. Upon receiving my MA in Integrative Health and Healing, I had the opportunity to delve into my life passions of the healing arts. My classes embody elemental forms of dance infused with positive energy, laughter and that unmistakable free-feeling one recieves when the body is in motion.
