Why Geeky Ballerina?
Because it's true--I really am so unapologetically geeky. I love deep dives into ballet pedagogy and methodology. I love reading the latest medical research on increasing flexibility. A quick "want to grab some coffee?" can turn into an hours-long discussion about integrating stillness or darkness into choreography. I adore the depth, complexity, and potential in this art form and I am grateful every day that I get to share my passion with others.
I teach ages 8 and up, at all levels of proficiency. I am available for master classes, workshops, teacher workshops, and classical and contemporary choreography.
