Dancer, Instructor, Choreographer

ABOUT 

I am an independent dance artist based in Boston. My work is influenced by American-style ballroom, ballet, contemporary and somatic dance practices.

 

My performances blend movement and memoir, and can be seen regularly in the Greater Boston area and beyond.

 

A frequent collaborator with Peter DiMuro/Public Displays of Motion (PDM), I work to advance the PDM mission of cultivating dance/arts literacy, advocacy and engagement. 

 

In 2016, I founded Steps in Time®, an adaptive ballroom dance program that serves assisted living and memory care communities.

 

Along with Maggie Cee, I produce Dancing Queerly, a festival of performances, workshops, discussions, and social dance gatherings by and for the LGBT+ community, friends, and allies.

My work has received support from the Boston Mayor's Office of Arts & Culture, Cambridge Cultural Council, The Boston Foundation, the Aliad Fund, New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA), The Dance Complex, a Fidelity Charitable grant from the James K. Spriggs Foundation, the generosity of individual donors, and fiscal sponsorship of Boston Dance Alliance.
