I am dedicated to a somatic approach towards the practice, research, and development of the expressive body in motion. Laban Movement Analysis not only assists me in enriching my work as both a contemporary choreographer and dance educator, but it allows me to articulate, shape, and synthesize that which I both experience and observe in the moving world around me. LMA has broadened my scope and has taught me how to move beyond the habitual in order to “find the new”.
