We are moving, breathing flesh and blood, beautiful and forgotten. Our bodies hold the truth of who we are, and I reconnect my students to the hidden creativity, wisdom, and power in their bodies.


“Marie has been an essential part of my training as an actor. Having taken three courses with her, Marie has intricately charted my development and UNDERSTANDS me. Her keen eye and heart for my passions and challenges has provided me with a safe place to experiment and face fears with gusto. Marie’s classes have provided me with a palette of colors I can access within my body to color the characters I tackle and paint the creative endeavors I am involved in. This course has been so open to my own opinions, visions and ideas – I leave it feeling empowered to discover my own passions further while utilizing my artistic experiences as an actor as fuel forward.” – Student Eval UConn Spring 2019

Student Review Spring 2019

“I love that my professor really allowed for us to take the time to struggle through our weaknesses in the work and find our own ways to benefit from that experience and use it to learn. I love that she makes me feel like failure is okay, saying “yes” to failure and then letting go of that and trying again is a really useful tool I think for anyone who is learning. She also always made the class feel exciting and interesting and really treats her students with kindness, I really appreciate how open she is to us and I think its been to my benefit to work in an environment like that.” – Student Anonymous Review Fall 2013
