is a choreographer, performer, movement educator, body worker; a master teacher of and major contributor to Klein Technique™, faculty and certified practitioner of Zero Balancing.
Classes (and workshops) focus on and provide the tools to support movement of all styles of dance as well as other activities. The essential premise is that the postural and movement support of the body is the same in all activities.
The purpose of the “stretch and placement” class is to re-educate one’s body with an interweaving of theory and practice on a physical, intellectual, and organic level. The result is a clarity and sureness of movement, and a new level of understanding the innate intelligence of the body. The work has many facets and levels. It is a way to explore one’s capacity to move, bringing insight into the workings of one’s body. It increases efficiency, facility, and can increase the longevity of one’s dancing life.
The work is non-stylized; it’s embodiment creates possibilities – greater technical facility, fluidity, and groundedness. It manifests itself in the creative capacity by releasing the constrictions of the body and mind from the configurations of right and wrong, helping to replace older patterns of movement and thinking with newer, more efficient ones.
In workshops, it is the time and the group energy that moves us along quicker,-dropping us all, participants and teachers, into an escalated learning experience.
