Jennifer Polyocan has danced professionally for over ten years and is ATI certified after completing a three-year training course at the Alexander Technique Center in Cambridge Massachusetts. She is also a graduate of New College of California with a degree in Arts and Social Change.
Polyocan danced with Miami City Ballet, The Alabama Ballet, and with Washington Ballet. Throughout her career she experienced mind-body techniques as an important and valuable measure for preventing injuries. Polyocan firmly believes that body awareness and curiousity leads to an intelligent dancer, performer, and artist.
She now teaches ballet to children and adults at ODC dance commons, MoBu Dance Studio, UC Berkeley and USF. Although Polyocan has danced the majority of her life, she maintains a curiosity and joy for dance that continues to evolve and grow. She is honored to share knowledge and joy of movement with students. In addition to ballet instruction, she also teaches private Alexander Technique lessons in San Francisco.
