Carrie Brueck Morris is currently Associate Professor of Dance at Grand Valley State University. Originally from Minnesota, she graduated from Kenyon College with a B.A. in Dance and earned her M.F.A. in Dance at Temple University. Prior to her time in Michigan, Ms. Morris taught at Western Kentucky University, University of Southern Mississippi, and Temple University. She has been fortunate to perform with choreographers such as Lou Antonini, Marianela Boán, and Meghan Durham Wall, performing in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and New York. Carrie has also produced her own choreography professionally in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, and Civitavecchia, Italy.

Drawing on a wide range of styles and traditions, this class will weave together principles from several different techniques, but focus most heavily on select aspects of Bartenieff Fundamentals, Humphrey-Limon, and release techniques. The class will use elements of these techniques to support the study of movement efficiency, weight shifts, breath, momentum, and dancing off-center to further total body awareness and commitment while dancing.
