Paula is an outstanding individual. As an artist-teacher she approaches her work with a rare combination of intelligence, energy, and sensitivity. Paula is an extremely articulate dancer interested in all language, the silent and the spoken. She has developed to a high level a rich and meticulous vocabulary integrating anatomy, kinesiology, Labanalysis, and her own wealth of imagery. Virginia Reed,D.T.R. Certified Laban Movement Analyst
Paula's teaching is inspiring, insightful and unadorned. She immediately engages students with clear and imaginative instructions and precise prompts. Her class is a powerful experience of movement in the moment. We are deeply grateful to Paula for sharing with us so generously her wisdom, knowledge and experience. Kalya Yannatos, The Putney School, Putney, VT
Paula's teaching style is rare. It's the balance of yin/yang. Paula does not come from ego. She is truly interested in understanding and supporting her students, and passing along her wisdom while being open to what she can learn in the moment. She's amazing. Fabulous experience. Lisa Daigle
Paula's ability to communicate her enthusiasm, along with her extensive knowledge of dance made the course completely enjoyable. She is highly creative in her teaching, her instructions are always clear, and she challenges us to think in new ways about our bodies and movement.
All I can say is that you are the best dance teacher I could ever hope to have. I saw you transform 30 random peope in my beginner class into dancers in a few short month. You have greatly enhanced my already considerable love for dance!
I took this class based on your wonderful reputation and am so glad I did! You have taught me so mnuch and I thank you for beng so patient with me. I hope I have the opportunity to be your student someday again.
Paula's classes built upon each other, making a continual learning "flow". The exercises were really mind-opening and made me realize a new way of thinking about the body and dance itself.
Paula! Cares about us, is interested in us, helps us, but lets us be independent too.
Make a class with Paula a requirement! I learned more about myself and life and thinking and feeling in this class than I have in any experience I've had before.
Paula gave us more love and support than can be expected from any teacher. She gave each student her full attention, always offered correction, but never intruded upon our creative processes. And she knows more about dance than anyone I've ever come across.
A mind-opening experience about what dance is about. I've never left a dance class feeling like I've learned so much. Paula took the fear out of dancing for me.
