"Mari brings the embodied wisdom of her diverse dance lineage to each class​ she teaches. She creates a nurturing environment that invites students to dig deeply and inquisitively into their practice. She seamlessly infuses technique into creative choreography while encouraging self expression, discovery, and spontaneity. Her deep respect for her teachers, her students, and her collaborators is apparent in all her creations."
