She holds a MA from Trinity Laban Conservatorie of Movement and Dance in London, where she received a Bonnie Bird Memorial Scholarship, CMA (Certified Movement Analysis) from the Laban/Bartenieff Institute in NYC and BFA from New York University Experimental Theater Wing/Tisch Dance.

In this creative dance residency, participants will be inspired to understand and tap into the expressive power of their bodies and to share their stories through dance and movement. Participants will learn about the elements of dance and how to generate original movement material in collaboration with others. This material will be used to create a dance presentation for a culminating event that reflects the participants lived experiences.
