Associate Professor
The CSM Dance Department provides a well-rounded dance education program. Its ideology encompasses the philosophy that dance is an art form which incorporates the whole person. The department seeks to foster an understanding and appreciation of dance.

Through its course offerings, the department consistently and consciously promotes a nourishing, diverse, and innovative artistic environment with a commitment to inspiring a life‑long pursuit of dance as a profession, avocation, or simply a source of enjoyment and entertainment. The department offers a variety of dance techniques and encourages students to express their own ideas through the creative process of choreography.

Students are given the opportunity to perform in our bi-annual dance concerts on campus and the option of joining the Performance Dance Ensemble which encourages students to develop pre-professional dance skills in performance, choreography, and production.

Get ready for CSM's Spring Dance Concert! CSM Dance presents an entertaining production featuring performances from CSM's Dance Performance & Production class, CSM’s dance technique classes, Mills College, Maligrad Dance Company and more!
