Significant teachers
I am very grateful to have learned from many teachers of various dance disciplines throughout my life. Most influential during my formative years were: K.J. Holmes, David Dorfman, Doug Elkins, Vicky Shick, Viveca Vázquez and Myrna Renaud. In more recent years: Meredith Monk, Tim O'Donnell and Ray Chung, not to mention many people in countless jams with whom I have been able to dance and grow in my practice.
