Tonya Kilburn is a refreshing and experienced dancer and dance instructor. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Oklahoma. Her spirited residencies involve creative movement and basic modern dance techniques. Participants will become more aware of their bodies and how they move through space and connect to their environment. Time, space energy, shape and rhythm will be explored through dance that may include folk, social, theatre jazz or improvisation. As a result, children become more comfortable with their bodies and expressing their ideas.
