Notable collaborations in dance include the work of Leslie Seiters, Little Known Dance Theater, Katie Duck, whom I toured and performed with from 2004, the Amsterdam based Magpie Music Dance Company, Wally Cardona, Diego Piñon’s Butoh Mexicano, and most recently Sara Shelton Mann and Hope Mohr Dance Company. While living in Amsterdam I was a frequent guest teacher at the Amsterdam School for the Arts, the School for New Dance Development (Amsterdam), Rotterdam Dance Academy, and ArtEZ (Arnhem). I have also taught workshops and classes in Contemporary Technique, Contact Improvisation, Instant Composition for Performance and Yoga. As a performer I began as many do, singing in church. My interest in dance began at age 10 after tagging along with my sister to ballet class. Since then, curiosity for the live arts has led me to study dance, theater and various somatic approaches to movement with diverse teachers and practitioners, including my lifelong teacher and mentor, the brilliant Kathryn Irey in San Diego.
