Her choreography has been commissioned for various music videos, short films, colleges, institutions, and collaborations.

    Class Description:

    All levels of mover are welcome Gentle Dances is a time to listen carefully to our bodies and reconnect to patience and surrender through repetition, improvisation, and breath. The last 20 minutes of class is dedicated to learning and deconstructing phrase material in our individual adaptive spaces.
