Sullivan has been teaching on the East Coast since 2008 and began teaching internationally in 2013. Experienced with a wide range of ages, abilities, and genres, she currently works for Dance for PD®, which offers free dance classes to people with Parkinson’s Disease, and Together in Dance, through which she teaches creative movement residencies in public schools. Sullivan joined the faculties of these organizations in 2017 after Dance Heginbotham’s DanceMotion USA tour to Southeast Asia shifted her primary teaching focus. Prior, she taught ballet, tap, and conditioning year-round at competitive dance studios in the tri-state area. Short-term engagements have included work with The Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Program, Cayman Arts Festival’s Education in Motion, New York City Department of Education’s Middle School Boot Camp, and Lincoln Center Kids! She is a two-time recipient of the Goldman Arts Enrichment Teaching Fellowship in partnership with Harlem School of the Arts. Sullivan’s current efforts to increase the accessibility of arts programming in public schools stem from volunteer experiences through Artists Striving to End Poverty and The New Orleans Project. Many thanks to The School of Oregon Ballet Theatre for the first opportunity to dive into this important line of work.
