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 a 2018 NYFA/ NYSCA Artist Fellow in Choreography, the winner of the 2015 Gibney Dance's Beth Silverman-Yam Social Action Award, and the founder of the 12-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).

She is a member of the International Association for Dance Medicine and continues to take accredited training and professional development programs in continuing education from the National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioral Science. She is currently writing a book, which explores a groundbreaking, scientific approach to butoh. She teaches trauma-informed Butoh classes.

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. Our classes are open level and beginners are welcome.

Our Butoh classes are trauma-informed; however, we recommend that prior to taking any class, prospective students familiarize themselves with our studio policy, particularly students with a history of PTSD or students with any mental health condition. Please read OUR STUDIO POLICY before taking class. Thank you!
