What is your typical process for working with a new student?

AOM works with each student to recommend class placement that is best suited to their needs.  We offer classes from Pre-K to the Professional level in a conservatory setting.  Each student fills out a registration form to share their past knowledge, medical history, former injuries and goals.  We then recommend classes and faculty to meet their needs.  

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

All AOM faculty are seasoned professionals in dance, Pilates, Yoga and vocal music.  Students can visit our website to read faculty bios. AOM also is home to a professional company - the Art of Motion Dance Theatre

How did you get started teaching?

I began while in college, then taught internationally while on tour with the Nikolais Dance Theatre and continued teaching in NYC, throughout the U.S. and at colleges and universities.  

What types of students have you worked with?

All types, all ages, all abilites.  

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I enjoy traditional performances such as The Nutcracker and unconventional performances such as the Modern Dance Series at The Joyce and site-specific locations in parks, at festivals and unexpected places.  

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Meet the teacher personally before class and make sure you feel comfortable with their approach.  Make sure the teacher understands your movement past and if you have any medical issues or injuries you are recovering from that may affect your class experience.  Come prepared to learn!

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

1.  Do I have any physical limitations?

2.  Do I have allergies, asthma or medical issues?

3.  Am I preparing for a goal, such as college or job audition, or dancing en pointe?

4.  What is proper dance attire in terms of clothing and/or shoes?
