Carol Teitelbaum, a Guild-Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner(CM), has over twenty five years of experience as a movement educator. A former member of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, Ms. Teitelbaum was the faculty chair of the Merce Cunningham School from 1998 until its closing in March of 2012. In addition to teaching technique classes and repertory workshops, she has staged many Cunningham dances for a variety of dance companies and schools, ranging from revivals for the Merce Cunningham Dance Company to projects with the Ballet de Lorraine, State University of New York at Purchase College, Barnard College, Conservatoire de Paris, and Stanford University. Many years of working closely with dancers gives Ms. Teitelbaum a keen understanding of the physical demands of dance and a familiarity with the common solutions to these challenges, many of which impede performance or lead to injury. The Feldenkrais Method® of somatic education provides her with both a framework and a means to work more deeply with both dancers and non-dancers to find greater choice in selecting easier and more effective movement patterns. The effects of this improved attunement can be far reaching artistically and personally, as well as physically. Ms. Teitelbaum is a graduate of the New York Feldenkrais Training Program. In addition to her private clientele, she is currently working at the Field Center for Children's Integrated Development, an organization devoted to working with special-needs children, established by Sheryl Field, noted Feldenkrais Practitioner and teacher. Ms. Teitelbam holds an M.F.A from the University of Michigan.
