  • Your responses...

  • Alicia D. - First, I learn from other choreographers. Next, I combine knowledge and experience while experimenting with new material. Then, I transmit and refine the results from the experiment to others. And the cycle restarts...
  • April B. - ...through a multi-layered process of building an awareness of the expansive lexicon of human movement; training the student in self-defining practices such as improvisation and Authentic Movement; and giving them choreographic tasks/studies.
  • Jessie L. - I teach the whole dance-artist, meaning students gain technique skills along with improv and comp. I offer choreographic tools, they observe professionals and each other, give feedback & choose meaningful concepts to build work w/ clear intention.
