Born and raised in Berkeley CA, I started dancing at the Shawl Anderson Modern Dance Center in Berkeley, CA at the age of 11.
In my early performing career, I was a founding member of Mobius Dance Company and then worked with various choreographers in the Bay Area and New York City. I have been performing with Dana Lawton Dances, a resident company at Shawl-Anderson Dance Center in Berkeley, since 2010, and have performed with the Ruth Botchan Company, Amy Rosen, Nina Haft & Company, Kate Mitchell, Risa Jaroslow, and AXIS Dance Company, among others.
I have been teaching dance and fitness since the early '80's and focusing on helping people age with grace and strength since the mid- 2000's. I currently teach adults of all ages, offering classes and private lessons for total beginners and those needing a bit of extra support.
If you are curious about how dance or fitness training could benefit you, just send me a note and we can set up some time to talk!
