Vangeline draws on 16 years of experience as a Butoh teacher and Butoh performer. She is the winner of the 2015 Gibney Dance's Beth Silverman-Yam Social Action Award, and the founder of the 10-year running, award-winning program “Dream a Dream Project", which brings Butoh dance to incarcerated men and women at correctional facilities across New York City. Recent invitations include teaching engagements at the Chile Fire Butoh Festival, Taiwan Darkness Festival, and also in Hong Kong and at Studio 303 in Montreal. Vangeline is the author of an upcoming book about Butoh focusing on the Mind-Body connection. This series is informed by her two decades of Butoh research.

This unique training is an invaluable tool for dancers, actors, adult beginners, encouraging participants to open up and expand physically and energetically. This workshop creates a gentle and supportive environment to start an individual and collective process of investigation through creative movement.

The Vangeline Theater does not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identification. Our classes are open to everyone interested in studying butoh. Our workshops and classes are trauma informed. We welcome students with disabilities, including students with hearing impairment, and/or students who are visually impaired or wheelchair-bound students. Our classes are open level and beginners are welcome.
