“I give students tools to find self-expression and creativity.  I want students to feel more comfortable in their own bodies, to have heightened self-esteem, new friends, and a connection and understanding of musicality and movement."

Jimena Bermejo
Director of Dance Program

 

“It’s about letting go of old habits, opening a little window, and knowing there’s a whole world out there to relax in movement.  It’s the moment to think about ‘Dance is bigger than I thought.’”

Kaela San Lee
Movement Specialist
Dance Program

 

”I approach both kinesthetic and academic learning with an awareness of diversity and individuality, honing in on important fundamentals that foster self-confidence and a sense of community in the classroom. “

Audra Carabetta

"I bring my extensive professional dance experience and playful approach to movement to every class.  In each class we will work hard, have fun, and embrace mulitplicity, arouse curiosity, and emphasize personal choice."
