Vangeline draws on 17 years of experience as a Butoh teacher and dancer, and has 35 years of expertise in the field of dance. She is the winner of the 2015 Gibney Dance's Beth Silverman-Yam Social Action Award, and the founder of the 11-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 Studio 303 in Montreal ( Jan. 28 to Feb. 1st, 2019), and the Zen Mountain Monastery (Feb 15-17, 2019).

“This is one of the best workshops I have ever taken. If it were available every month, I would always take it. All aspects are applicable to my work as a theatre maker.” (Anthony Kennedy)

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.
