TEACHING

Maree facilitates movement experiences to celebrate a range of bodies and expressions by welcoming individuals across disciplines, identities, and experience levels to dance. She works in professional, academic, conservatory, and community settings. To create various access points, her approach is  both playful and deliberate and draws from her eclectic background with the Gaga movement language; somatic and improvisational practices from dance and theater; early training in traditional concert dance forms; compositional and choreographic tools that support collaboration in devised, emergent processes; sound; writing; and visual art. Through the integration of these practices, she invites participants into processes of listening, witnessing, sensing, creating, adapting, responding, and decision-making, as well as cultivating strength, flexibility, and stamina. Dance is a means of developing self-awareness, interpersonal connection, expressive communication, healing, and entertainment. Maree is a certified Gaga instructor and practitioner of the Ilan Lev Method, a Feldenkrais-based bodywork; she holds an MFA from The Ohio State University.
