During her undergraduate studies, Liz was an assistant teacher for solo and group composition, and modern technique classes. Liz spent three years as Dance Faculty at the University of Delaware, where she taught multiple levels of modern and jazz technique courses. Her passion for teaching dance to all levels and ages, led her to teaching at studios and conservatories. Liz has taught many styles (jazz, contemporary, ballet, modern, tap, improvisation, composition, etc.) to dancers ages 6-18. Liz has been on faculty at Cecil Dancenter in North East, MD; Delaware Arts Conservatory in Bear, DE; RageBox Dance Center in Bel Air, MD, and many other studios throughout the North East region. Liz assisted the board of the Maryland Council for Dance, and served as Concert Chair for their annual Artists' Concert in 2016. Following this experience, she served as President of the council for the 2017 festival. Liz has set many award winning solos, duets, trios and group choreography for concerts, adjudications, competitions, scholarship auditions and college auditions. She has mentored students who have continued to study dance in a University setting, and whom have pursued professional dance careers. One of Liz's most enjoyable choreographic and teaching endeavors, has been setting work for Harford Community College's Harford Dance Theater program. Each year a famous artist serves as inspiration for the concert, and through this inspiration a story is created and told through dance movement. The dance concert utilizes multimedia, voice overture, complex lighting and props.
