Ways and Means Dance Company

  • Dance Production

Founder, Artistic Director, choreographer, and dancer for the WAYS AND MEANS DANCE COMPANY (1992- 2001). A modern dance performing ensemble committed to connecting art and the community and confronting social issues. It presented residencies, concerts, school assemblies, lecture demonstrations, master classes and workshops. As parts of its activities, the company was on the Wake County Artists in the Schools Roster which provided performances and residencies for elementary, middle and high schools. In these residencies we performed dances inspired by the children's own poetry (sent to us and choreographed before the performances). During the company’s existence, we took great delight in performing for over 10,000 children and dancing to over 1200 of their poems.
