"I have formulated a training that has as its foundation Release and Improvisation techniques, Western body-mind practices and Eastern applications.

My most immediate aims in teaching are to encourage each student to explore their unique physicality, and to develop a working knowledge of effective and safe procedures they can use when crafting their own personal dance practice. I present to students a body-based training rooted in sensation and touch, that reflects attentive curiosity, intellectual involvement, creativity and imagination, and that trains students to be able to access richly textured, articulate and fully-physicalized dancing.

In the lecture Creating a Body, I will introduce the influences that shaped my work - T'ai Chi Ch'uan, the Alexander Technique, Release Technique, Ideokinesis and dancing with Trisha Brown - and shifted me away from traditional dance into the world of experimentation and mindful body techniques. I will show videos of some of my most influential teachers, and speak about my teaching philosophy and methodology that has evolved over the course of 3 decades of choreographing, performing and teaching."
