Incorporating various traditional and experiential learning components, my teaching style allows students to connect with dramatic works and ideas through their minds, hearts, hands, and bodies. My techniques ranges from classical (including Greek and Elizabethan performance) to modern styles, such as Viewpoints, Poor Theatre, Theatre of the Oppressed, Playwriting and Ethnodrama.
