Since the early 1970s, has practiced, taught, and advocated for explorative methods of dance making, performing solo and collaborative work internationally. She danced with the Trisha Brown Dance Company (1979-1985), performed her original role in Opal Loop at Jacob’s Pillow during their 85th anniversary celebration in August 2017, and continues to teach through the company education program in NY and elsewhere. She has an MFA degree (Dance Research Fellow) from Bennington College, and has taught dance at major colleges and studios throughout the U.S., Europe and Australia, including a period of sustained teaching on the faculty of the European Dance Development Center (EDDC), Arnhem, Netherlands (1990-2002). Her performing and teaching are both informed by dance improvisation and mindful body practices which engender trust in the body’s innate capacity for ease, efficiency and integrated openness. These include the Alexander Technique (certified teacher), Ideokinesis, Taiji, Qigong and Yoga.
The New York Judson dance revolution of the 1960’s and 70’s has been profoundly influential, giving her current dance practice a foundation of respect for the moving body, and a passion for creative process and experimentation.
