Mary Chris (MC) DeBelina Doyle’s focus since 2008 has been primarily teaching children creative dance and raising her growing family. MC studied Biology and Dance at Dartmouth College (B.A. 2005) and combined her two passions at Sarah Lawrence College receiving an MFA in Dance (2008). Her thesis work focused on the links between science and art.
MC founded the Hopkins Center’s Children’s Creative Dance Program at Dartmouth in 2005 and taught every class until 2012 when her family relocated to Philadelphia. As a faculty member at Dartmouth she was fortunate to perform with, and choreograph for, the Dartmouth Dance Theater Ensemble and she was a frequent guest teacher in the advanced modern dance classes.
MC finds dance in everything and currently her biggest inspirations are her four children. They are excited to have finally settled in Montpelier, Vermont and MC has been teaching children creative dance classes here and there since they moved in 2015.
