Teaching Experience

Yvonne has taught in a traditional studio and 6 years ago, she began teaching dance to special populations. Inspired by all of the people she has had the privilege of meeting and performing with, she could see how dance can be enjoyed by everyone in any space including without even leaving a chair.  The beauty of movement is found in re-discovering the old and finding new ways we can move through dance.
