Bio:

Amy Nevius is a versatile and innovative teacher, dancer and choreographer. She has studied, taught, and performed a variety of dance genres including ballet, tap, jazz, modern, aerial dance, and creative movement. She holds a B.A. in Dance Education from the University of Central Oklahoma and has attended several workshops and seminars regarding "Multiple Intelligences" and "Reaching Kinesthetic Learners Through Dance and Core Curriculum." Both technical and creative aspects of her professional training have allowed her the flexibility in developing a diverse teaching style that may be adapted for all learning environments. Her residencies impact students by allowing them to learn kinesthetically and to express themselves as unique individuals through the creation of original movement. Nevius enjoys teaching populations of all ages and skill levels and finds great reward in inspiring others through the art of dance.

Learning Goals:

Through guided creative movement activities, students will learn dance fundamentals and explore the elements of body, energy, space and time to create and perform original dance compositions.
