Joseph’s passion for dance and movement started at a young age watching ballroom dance competitions on public television. Their elegance and grace and led him to pursue studies in numerous social dances including Swing, Blues, Tango, and Salsa. His search for freedom of movement through technique lead him to expand his exploration to ballet, West African, yoga, GYROTONIC® method and Franklin Method. Finding both Franklin Method and GYROTONIC® method transformational in his social dancing, he ultimately became certified in both modalities.
Joseph enjoys teaching movement from a technical level with an eye towards pragmatism. Drawing from his breadth of knowledge, he is able to connect with his students by demonstrating the direct application of exercises toward their individual goals in movement.Joseph Liu
