Through an informal sharing of ideas, in words and in movement, parents will explore the idea that children's movement communicates meaning, and can be the foundation for an evolving dialogue, nonverbal and verbal. The aim of this workshop is to provide food for thought about playful, mutual communication between children and their families and peers.

She has been in Santa Barbara since 2010 where she has a private practice.
