With a lifetime of training in dance disciplines – Modern, Jazz, Ballet, West African, Hip hop and Improvisational Dance, in combination with child development studies - Sasha brings a strong background of experience to the Crested Butte School of Dance! Sasha is influenced by BrainDance, a philosophy in dance education that develops dance skills, brain/body connection, social/emotional growth, and creative expression. Her recent inspiration has been teaching physically integrated dance to children with and with out special needs. Her dance involvement includes teaching in the Berkeley Public School district, Luna Kids Dance, Hipline Dance Studio, AXIS Dance Company, Celebrate the Beat, Adaptive Sports and studying and performing butoh improvisational dance. Sasha is an M.A. candidate in Somatic Counseling Psychology/Dance Movement Therapy at Naropa University. She gives thanks to her butoh teachers Diego Pinon and Shinichi Iova-Koga for re-framing what dance is. A transplant from the bay area to the Gunnison Valley, she now enjoys teaching with the amazing dance community of CB School of Dance and the CB Dance Collective!
