Leaps I've taken to initiate and lead programs include:
"The artist never entirely knows. We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.”
Agnes De Mille, American dancer and choreographer
At heart, I'm a dancer who began dancing and performing before learning to read. My long history as a professional performing artist (with PATH Dance, Room to Move, Ancient Rhythms, and AVAdance), and as a dance therapist, has given me an understanding of:
commitment; motivation; change; flexibility; partnering; nuance; expressiveness; presentation; connection; freedom; and an appreciation of beauty and excellence (my top VIA-IS signature strength).
As a social worker and coach, I can add advocacy to that list.
Yoga is a practice I dedicate to my students. Writing, particularly poetry,
is a practice I dedicate to my muse (and my kind audience).
