These are some of the comments from
previous workshop participants...
"You managed to deliver process, content, philosophy, pedagogy and the soul and
artistry of dance in the course. I was truly amazed and inspired. I also appreciate how empowering you were to us
as individuals and how you were able to make such graceful corrections without criticism. The dinner (Saturday night)
was a special treat, and fortified the sense of community you had already developed in the course." (Sharon Stahl, VT)
"And I want to thank you, thank you
thank you. The Teacher Intensive has turned my method of teaching inside out, and after all these years I’m looking
at my classroom experience with a new, fresh set of eyes. What a gift...I feel the same excitement and curiosity I did
as a new teacher! I’ve attended master classes since I was a young student, but this seminar was truly unique and enlightening. I
had expected you to be well prepared, because you always are. What surprised and blew me away was the open and heartfelt
exchanges and sharing amongst the rest of us. Wow! So much great information and food for thought that I haven’t
digested it all yet." (Kanina, RI)
"Life has many gifts and YOU are one of them!!!"
(Elizabeth Nett, MA)
"Taking the workshop made me feel more confident and I can't wait for the next one."
