What I Do at SSU

I instruct all levels of contemporary/modern dance technique. I also teach dance history (with an emphasis on 20th century dance and its socio-political context), choreography, foundations and experiential anatomy. I direct SSU's Spring Dance Ensemble Concert and make original work every year with SSU students. I continue to choreograph and perform in the area with the SoCo Dance Theater. I am the Chair of The Department of Theatre Arts & Dance and the Director of the Dance Program at SSU.
