I have been teaching improvisational movement and contemporary dance to humans of all ages for 15 years in all kinds of contexts. I enjoy bringing dance to schools because I have witnessed the vital and transformative impact it can have on students physical and emotional well being.

My workshops are inclusive and can be adapted to any age group or any physical challenges of participants. Themes can vary depending on season, time restriction and interests of each group
