I began teaching in the Dance Magnet Program in 2003. Before moving to Arizona in 2002, I taught for seven years in Winston-Salem, North Carolina integrating dance into the regular curriculum. I also have taught at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky and the University of Rochester in Rochester, New York. In addition to teaching, I performed with several dance companies: Hook Dance Company in Rochester, the Beverly Brown Dancensemble in New York City, and Windfall Dancers in Bloomington, Indiana. I am originally from New Jersey and attended Rutgers College in New Brunswick, NJ graduating in 1976 with a BA in English. I also received a MS in Modern Dance from Indiana University in 1981.
