Teaching Statement

Jennifer Harge has worked as a movement educator since 2008. Her teaching has included secondary-higher education, private studios, and community dance workshops. In every environment, Harge approaches the classroom as a communal space, inviting people into the room by creating a shared process. While Harge's physical syntax--which embodies an ever-changing relationship to gravity, blackness, and the teetering between surviving and thriving--will often lead the room as a point of departure, students are invited to co-direct the room based on their individual investigations. The goal is to facilitate a room that allows different voices to lead and different approaches to movement to be seen.

Harge is currently a Special Lecturer at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan.
