I am the co founder, artistic director and dance professional of ZUZI! Dance Company, School and Theater in Tucson, AZ. USA of all ages, for over 16 years. I have had certification of both the Introductory and Ongoing Skinner Releasing technique and have facilitated weekly classes in both Introductory and Ongoing since 2000 at the ZUZI! Theater.
ZUZI! teaches over 23 classes a week, facilitates field trips, summer camps, healing through movement retreats, workshops, invites guests artists, collaborates with other arts organizations in the community including artists and musicians, provides an affordable theater venue, sitting over 130 people. Of this extensive list of programming, I organize and facilitate many of these classes, workshops, performances and residencies. ZUZI! Dance Company has 3 limbs to its company. ZUZI! provides a youth company which focuses on aerial dance, an apprentice company nurturing the aspiring professional dancer and the adult professional company which fosters the voice of each individual company member as choreographer. All 3 companies perform in ZUZI! bi annual Dance Concerts.
Releasing principles are instilled in all classes that I facilitate at ZUZI! whether they be aerial dance, contemporary dance, improvisation or community dance for all ages and abilities.
