Staff Bio

Dance training in USA consisting of classical ballet (Jasinski/Larkin: Ballets Russes de Monte Carlo); modern dance (James Truitte: Horton); Professional: Cincinnati Ballet Company, Tulsa Ballet Company.

I am passionate about teaching at ACPE because… ACPE provides an environment that combines educational and artistic dance training. Learning experiences in the dance degrees are designed to address current dance professional practice in educational settings, maintaining strong links to the dance profession.

I’m inspired by… Choreographers and dancers who aspire to find new ways to communicate their ideas through dance. I am also inspired by students who come with a passion for dance, and formalise this passion through a keen engagement with their discoveries in and through dance during their tertiary studies.

In my spare time I like to… read and research about dance and dance curriculum, go to dance concerts, spend time with friends and family, travel.
