Professor and Program Director of Dance Studies at CSUSM

As Professor and founding Program Director, I established a vision for a 21st-century higher education dance program. At California State University San Marcos (CSUSM), Dance Studies is committed to offering students an understanding of contemporary dance practices and performance within an ever changing social and political context. Curricular offerings are intended to converge physical practice, critical analysis, and cultural respect. Performance projects, collaborative-based learning, community engagement, and social change are the heart of the program. Through a heightened awareness of the value of dance and embodied research, responsible citizenship and self-empowerment can support the development of a more compassionate world.
