With Love, Bianca
"Wake at dawn with a winged heart, and give thanks for another day of loving." -Khalil Gibran
This is a movement: in space, in form, in body, in mind, in dance, in language.
This is an opportunity to celebrate movement in our lives and in each moment.
Bianca is an educator, dancer, performance artist, and writer who has been featured in numerous international dance conventions, publications, film, television, theatre, and stage productions. As an educator, she has lead classrooms and professional workshop series in universities and conferences all over the world.
Love has been the guiding force in all of her artistic and academic journeys.
Her mantra is a revelry of movement: movement through dance and movement through language.
Love manifests through movement.

With Love, Language
There are two important principles that play a role in the success of every student in Bianca's classroom: authority and empowerment. She encourages students to take ownership of their learning. She empowers students to write with authority while giving them the tools needed to improve and enjoy their writing experience. In her online classroom, She listens to her students about their learning and writing experiences and she acknowledges their concerns and comments while developing a forum of ideas, awareness, and critical thinking. With her love for language, she shows them the value of collaborative learning; the value of collaborative work; and the value of their voice. Students are the greatest contributors to her online classroom, and their contributions dictate the design and aims of the classroom.
