Dirt Road Divinity with Lisa Wade
Dirt Road Divinity chat with Allison Pagano
Smart. Grounded. Connected. Stubborn for her soul's calling. Creator of Embodied Dance. Really good human.
In this conversation, Allison Pagano shares her revolutionary approach to dance as a healing modality to reclaim all parts of one's self. She's combined roots in cultural anthropology, a passion for dance, and training in many modalities of body and wellness work to create a method to empower others toward transformation through dance.
Allison has spent the past 22 years traveling, training, and teaching in major universities, hospitals, private dance and wellness studios working with groups and individuals to find healing, enhance performance qualities and support in life transitions through the dance, movement and the healing arts.
She is a former lecturing professor at Iona College and former professor of dance technique at Manhattanville College. She completed her MFA in Dance through Montclair State University in 2018.
Her choreographic credits include Somatic dance festivals, Iona College, Hackensack Performing Arts Center, the Union Arts Center and the Garden State Opera.
Embodied Dance was born out of a desire to fill in the gaps in dance training where the mind body connection is often missing as well as to provide a holistic approach teaching to and from the WHOLE PERSON.
This method seeks to provide experiences using dance as a HEALING communicative tool to explore how we interpret, address and envision what it means to be human; evolving and responding to our changing times.
