I am the former Director and choreographer of Back Pocket Dancers, an inter-generational ensemble, including several elder dancers, that performs at elder venues, schools, conferences, etc. In this capacity, and as co-director of Back Porch Dance Company (1990-2001) I have taught hundreds of dance workshops for elders. In 2013, I was chosen to teach an extended intensive dance program at Grove Hall Library, Boston, as part of the Creative Aging Libraries Project. For that project, I created a dance with the participants that was rooted in their memories of their grandmothers. I have received many choreography commissions: Fashionless Dances November 2012 at the Dance Complex; first annual Across the Ages Dance Project, June 2011; Dance in the Fells, Gold Star award winning site-specific dance festival, October 2010, Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School Dance Company, fall 2008; Dance Complex,1999, First Night 1995/96. In 1997, I received a grant to work with eight local elders to create a song and dance show about elder health empowerment, through Somerbridge Community Health, which we performed at seven local venues and on local cable TV. I have also extensive experience being a dance teaching artist with children from pre-school through high school.
