Janice currently teaches at Wake Forest University as a Teacher-Scholar Postgraduate Fellow in the Department of Theatre and Dance (Modern Dance Techniques, 20th Century Modern Dance History, Movement for Men, and Embodying Ecological Thought). She also teaches at the University of NC School of the Arts (Composition and Improvisation, as well as subbing technique classes).
She has taught at the Shen Wei Dance Arts Winter and Summer Intensives and through the company's arts-in-education program in New York City's public schools. And in addition to receiving an MFA in Dance, she has attended Lincoln Center's Summer Forum Teaching Artist Development Lab: Aesthetic Education Immersion and Gibney Dance Company’s Institute for Community Action in New York City. She will soon begin teaching as an IMPROVment® method interventionist for clinical trials in collaboration with WFU and funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Janice has taught and staged her own work at the Universidad de las Américas in Puebla, Mexico; City Dance Center in Bethesda, MD; Roger Williams University in Bristol, RI; the University of NC School of the Arts in Winston-Salem; the State University of NY in Fredonia and most recently was a visiting guest artist at the University of Maine's Intermedia MFA Program in Orono, ME. She has also taught workshops and classes through her residencies at the Omi International Dance Residency in Ghent, NY, Hubbard Street 2 in Chicago, Bessie Schönberg Choreographers Residency on Martha’s Vineyard, MA, and Robert Wilson’s International Summer Residency in Watermill, NY.
Her classes in contemporary movement practices, improvisation, composition, and yoga celebrate each person as a unique constellation of possible movement styles and meanings, emphasizing clarity of choice and freedom for abandon. She is thorough in her warm-up and modalities for making connections and has in-depth experience with postural work, strength training, and somatic awareness.
She thanks her teachers, colleagues, and many inspirations while receiving a BFA in Dance from the University of NC School of the Arts (2001), MFA in Dance on fellowship from Hollins University/American Dance Festival (2010), Relax and Renew® Restorative Yoga certification (2011), Hatha yoga certification from the Asheville Yoga Center (2003); and is grateful for summers attending the American Dance Festival, Bates Dance Festival, and Doug Varone and Dancers Workshop on scholarship.
