Mariah is a Virginia based choreographer and instructor who has been commissioned / performed in New Jersey, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C., and Virginia. Mariah's movement style is derived by emotional risks leading to discovering and exposing truths about social inequality and exploring somatic movement and its relation to cross generational trauma. As an instructor, Mariah uses dance history and pedagogy to focus on conditioning work for strength, mental training for clarity and articulation, and strong performance skill that emphasizes intent.  Currently, Mariah is an Assistant Professor at Christopher Newport University and a community educator and choreographer.
