jennie pitts knipe
movement educator & choreographer
A dedicated educator, Jennie Pitts Knipe has taught creative movement, dance and yoga classes throughout the western states and abroad for over two decades. She earned her MFA in Dance from the University of Colorado, her BA in Dance & English Literature from the University of Oregon, and completed her yoga instructor training at the Shambhava Yoga Konalani Ashram (2004). Based in the Reno/Tahoe region, she passionately applies her skills as a teacher and dance maker to help others CONNECT . . . with their own bodies, with one another, with the environment, and with their limitless capacity to express and evolve from the heart.
Jennie is inspired by how humans relate to one another through movement and is constantly looking to cultivate joy, humor and healing in both her art and in her classroom.
