Teachers at the Old Town School

Monica Thomas

Dance

Monica fosters a fun and engaging learning environment that allows for personal empowerment and creative outlet. We focus on solid fundamentals of dance technique while also exploring major movement concepts, using Anne Green Gilbert's philosophy of BrainDance and ideas based on Laban Movement fundamentals. She emphasizes personal progress and achievements and encourages group collaboration. This leads students to a better understanding of their bodies and themselves.

Monica is a performer, choreographer, and filmmaker. As a dancer and actor, she has performed with Winifred Haun & Dancers, Mordine & Company, Striding Lion Performance Group, Redmoon, The Whiskey Rebellion, and The House Theater. Her film work has shown at festivals nationally and internationally. She is a former High Concept Laboratories Sponsored Artist and received the choreographic mentorship from Mordine & Company in 2013.

Started at the Old Town School in March of 2014
