Diane McCarthy has been a teacher of Simonson
Technique since 1988. Her full movement
phrases teach dancers to apply technique, explore
musicality and work on performance qualities.
Diane encourages students to make
personal choices about dynamics and phrasing
both in movement and stillness. Her classroom
is a place for all dancers to find their inner
strength, refine their technical skills, explore their passion to
move and learn to let go.
Simonson Technique, developed by Lynn Simonson, is a
comprehensive and anatomically based technique that prepares
the body to dance with
awareness and safety.
