"One of my greatest joys is to cultivate a compassionate environment of creative risk, growth and transformation. This is the heart of my teaching, regardless of the course: finding the edges of ease and risk, and inviting each student to a place of agency and growth. I work with each group of students as a community and encourage them to support each other through witness, consideration and feedback. My love of teaching stems from a deep love for the power of creativity and a belief in personal growth through community and movement." --Erin Drummond
