She also taught dance at the Conservatory of Music and Dance, Jenkintown Dance Arts, Beth Jacobsen School of Dance, and Imhotep Charter School .

She most recently attended an Expressive Dance Therapy program entitled, “Tamalpa” in Northern California. Since then she has been touring her yoga/dance therapeutic workshop called “Unpacking the Body,” in and around the Philadelphia area, as well as dancing for the band, “The Retinas,” in their music video “wretched time.” She was selected to perform with JWCK Dance Lab in their project entitled “Homebody.” This work was performed four times across the Philadelphia, and Reading areas and is currently premiering as part of the virtual fringe festival
