My Students

I teach in a large, urban high school, with a student body that is diverse in every way. We have a thriving dance department, with over 350 dancers in 10 classes a week. We produce five dance shows each year at the high school, to the joy of thousands of community members who attend our shows annually.

I love my students and enjoy exploring a variety of dance styles and movement practices with them.

After taking a variety of master classes from visiting artists, my dancers develop a sophisticated understanding of how movement forms throughout the world are related.

My Project

Yoga workshops have been a helpful addition to our dance practice, training dancers to be mindful of their physical alignment, breathing and flow. And of course, everyone loves lying in shavasana (corpse pose) at the end of class. Learning to integrate our mind-body connection is an important part of training as a dancer (and as a high school student)!

Yoga blocks will allow us to adjust yoga poses to better suit our bodies' needs.

Some dancers hold tension in their hips, others in their lower back or shoulders. Yoga blocks allow us to build support under our physical architecture, releasing muscles to lengthen and stretch.

Last year we were able to purchase yoga mats, which the kids love. This year, with the addition of yoga blocks, we'll really be able to approach our yoga classes with the materials and support we need to practice in a focused and fulfilling way. Thank you!
