The CoMotion Dance Project provides highly-qualified dance teaching artists for K-5 classrooms. Elementary students are skillfully guided to create, perform, respond and connect to the curriculum (i.e. fractions, water cycle, parts of speech) using dance. In addition to learning artistic thinking skills in creative dance, our workshops foster emotional and social skills (listening, communication, collaboration, respect and diversity).

My belief is that all children should have the opportunity to express their creativity through movement. Integrating dance with the curriculum provides an alternate method of learning standards-based content, using the kinesthetic intelligence. I seek to create an enthusiasm for learning and movement, and to support the academic curriculum.

Theatre is collaboration and discovery. I am constantly honing my observation skills, striving to build connections between people, ideas, moments, and works of art. There is always more to learn, and always a new direction in which to grow. Most importantly, as a favorite teacher of mine used to constantly remind us, “You’ve got to have fun to be in the game.”

All music is a story. To connect with the audience, the story and underlying emotion(s) must be believably conveyed. There are simple ways to help the singer be in the place of storytelling. People don’t remember what you said but they DO remember how you made them feel.

I have a deep commitment to teaching/performing traditional African movement and conveying information on cultural importance of rhythms/dances. This tradition includes individual and communal healing, life transitions, honoring ancestors, and celebration. I am drawn to this form as a path for individuals to gain courage and a sense of community, process personal issues, and articulate new forms of self-expression.

Through visual art, I express relationships and beauty found in the natural world. As a teaching artist, I integrate the arts with all subjects, and place art at the heart of learning. The arts are a powerful tool towards understanding Indian Tribes of Montana, World Cultures, and the Natural Sciences.
