Thank you for visiting my site.  I am always happy to find new people to talk with about collaborations in teaching, scholarship and choreography!

About Laura:

I am a contemporary and ballet dancer, improviser and performer, as well as an ABT Certified teacher with additional training in the Vaganova syllabus and a Ph.D. in Dance and Women's Studies.  I am available for master classes in ballet technique, repertory, variations, choreography, pedagogy, dance history, gender theory as applied to dance analysis, and more.  I also love setting new works and re-staging classical repertory on dancers. 

My current research explores the relationships between professional wrestling and ballet, and the ways in which both forms disseminate and enforce social gender norms.
