Dancer. Choreographer. Dance Educator.
When I dance I feel the most myself. I feel centered, in the moment ... able to sink into the now. Dance is fleeting, they say the most fleeting of all the arts because we cannot freeze it in time and space. Perhaps that is why it is so rich. To be brought into my presence and touch in with this vast landscape of possibilities ... that is why I dance, why I choreograph. To lighten this path for others and to continue to research and question this art form is why I teach.
I was trained in various American modern techniques which remain the foundation of my work. The moving body continues to inspire me. Exploring and understanding the moving body expands my creativity as a teacher and choreographer. I continue to strike a balance between tradition and innovation – investigating new ways of moving whilst still centered in the roots of modern technique.
Digital Dance Classes
This class combines strengthening elements with release based exercises that emphasise breath and flow. The training begins with a focus on the center through basic yoga poses and continues with moving technical exercises (plies, foot work, floor work, curves /swings) which allow the body to open, creating length and volume. Directional changes, use of weight, fusion of fluidity and groundedness are all key elements in weiss-mann technique, as well as rhythm and musicality. The concepts explored in the warm up are called upon again in the end phase of class with longer traveling combinations which invite the dancer to move with complete surrender.
