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 Princeton University, CUNY, and 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 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.


This workshop is open level and beginners are welcome.

This program is supported in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
