Jarmila’s love of sharing dance and the movement arts has been a lifelong journey. Having studied with movement pioneers such as Irmgart Bartinief, Betty Jones, and Anna Halpren, her approach is as rich as it is eclectic. In college, Jarmila discovered yoga, and her studies and teaching of it took her around the world.
Jarmila has taught creative movement and ethnic dance in the Portland area since 1998. Prior to that, she taught in Hawaii, Philadelphia, Cyprus, Australia, and Greece. Using dance and movement as an empowerment experience, she nurtures her students’ self-esteem and kinetic sense.
Jarmila’s signature dance camp, Dance Around the World, has been expanding children’s cultural knowledge and experience for over a decade.
