Dance Instruction & Choreography

Carrie Stillman
Instructor-Choreographer-Dancer-Mentor
Carrie received her MA in Dance Education from CSU, Long Beach (2001) and her BA in Dance from UC, Santa Barbara (1992). She has been teaching dance since 1994 and has been on the dance faculty at Santa Rosa Junior College since 2000. She has also worked as a certified Pilates instructor since 1994, and owns and operates, Mindful Movement Pilates Training Studio (www.mmpt.info) in Santa Rosa. She has choreographed, danced, and co-directed for several dance companies, festivals, benefits, and studios in a variety of settings throughout Sonoma County and the Bay Area since 1992. Carrie finds great joy and fulfillment from teaching, choreographing, performing, and laughing, and is continuously striving to stay open, innovative, and present through movement expression and education, not letting the ego block conscious creativity. Her goal is to propel herself and her students into a positive state of being through dancing as a means of self-expression, fun, exercise, stress reduction, and community development.
Carrie specializes in both classical and contemporary Modern Dance techniques and choreographic approaches. She feels it is important to pay tribute to the legends of Modern Dance who paved the way for it to become a world recognized and respected dance form. At the same time, she values and is excited by innovation, and incorporates the styles and techniques of the contemporary Modern Dance artist (currently working in the field of dance) into her teachings. 
Her style and artistry blends the past and the present. But most importantly, she always strives to be innovative, inspiring, unique, and entertaining with her creations. Whether it is athletic, grand, and humorous, or expressive, subtle, and dramatic, her passion for movement as a means of nonverbal communication is always at the forefront of her choreographic intent.

Quotes from some of Carrie’s favorite dance artists:
From the past…
“If we seek the real source of the dance, if we go to nature, we find that the dance of the future is the dance of the past, the dance of eternity, and has been and will always be the same.”
~Isadora Duncan
“All that is important is this one moment in movement. Make the moment important, vtial, and worth living. Do not let it slip away unnoticed and unused.”
~Martha Graham
From the present…
“Be open to where life takes you. Follow your instincts.”
~Mia Michaels
“It (dancing) is an art that imprints on the soul. It is with you every moment, even after you give it up….It is an art that expresses itself in how you walk, how you eat, how you make love, and how you do nothing. It is the art of the body, and as long as a dancer possesses a body, he or she feels the call of expression in dancer’s term.”
~ Shirley Maclaine
