    Biography:

She has danced professionally with Soluq Dance Theater, Manuel Vignoulle, Thomas Noone Dance, and Keith Johnson/Dancers, and began choreographing and producing her own work in 2020. Her sold-out, evening-length show, Galvanizing Steel was presented at Gibney/NYC, she has since presented work as part of the Doug Varone Devices Performance in 2022 and was recently awarded a grant and performance residency from The Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning (JCAL) to be performed in late September 2023.

    Countertechnique® Class Description:



    The Countertechnique® class is a contemporary dance technique class. It stretches, coordinates and strengthens the body, making the dancer sweat, build stamina and really move. The class starts with a recurring set of exercises, allowing dancers to investigate the Countertechnique® principles in detail. The second half of the class consists of changing components, working towards luscious movement combinations and jumping at the end. The Countertechnique® class results in dancers using less energy, losing their fear of taking risks and gaining speed in changing direction.
