I consider myself fortunate to have grown up as a dancer.

The magic of being in touch with the creativity, healing and strength that comes from within our own bodies – our inner temples-of-being – is something that I am learning to appreciate ever more greatly with the passage of time and the maturity of years.

I work as a dancer, creator and educator and, although I have walked this path for 40 years, am still learning and re-learning to find my feet and hear the embodied voice that arises from within.

Please visit my Ico-Dance page for information about expressive dance classes for adults in La Jolla, California.

Please visit my creativeDANCE page for information about creative dance for children in San Diego North County, California.

I hope you enjoy reading and I would be happy to hear from you if you have any comments or questions…
