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.

Have you never taken a dance class before? Have you not danced since you were little? Are you a dancer, but looking for something different? Are you a parent looking for a space to be a little bit human for a while? Have you ever said, "I'm not a dancer!" but in your heart want to try?
Then join us! This class will focus on the joy of movement in many different ways. All bodies are welcome and the class will shift to the needs of the students.
The class will combine modern dance technique with guided improvisation and a smattering of composition. Come play while building muscle tone, balance, articulation and flexibility.
$56 for the series, $10 per class.
Bartering and sliding scale available!
