KERRY PARKER

Kerry first encountered the Gyrotonic system in 1988 as a young dancer in Seattle.  After a career in the ballet world, dancing for Pacific Northwest Ballet and The Vienna State Opera Ballet, she moved to New York to investigate other forms of dance/movement which is when she re-encountered the Gyrotonic system.  She found the organic nature of the movement to be profoundly rehabilitative as well as strengthening and satisfying on multiple levels-physically, emotionally and energetically.  Kerry has been certified since 1999.  Since teaching at Embody, she particularly enjoys the variety of learners, including those who have never danced. She also teaches all levels of ballet to all ages of people and dances with Deborah Jinza Thayer/Movement Architecture.
