Hello Community! A little background - I earned an MFA from Smith College, a BA from Keene State College, and a diploma in dance studies from London's Trinity Laban Conservatoire. After graduate school, I left New England for New York City, navigated the modern dance scene, fronted a few bands, met my partner and had a baby! After years of swirling around NYC, our little family moved to Ardmore, a suburb of Philadelphia. While pushing the stroller in my new neighborhood, I discovered an idyllic, one-acre park and "park dancing" was born! I began facilitating community dance events inspired by Fluxus art that continued for over three years and gained a following. Alas, we desired a more rural setting for our son's upbringing. My husband, son, shih-tzu and I decided on making Montpelier our home, and we're officially four years in. I look forward to crossing paths with you. Feel free to connect with me via email!
