"My favorite part of teaching is helping dancers get to know their bodies better in an effort to more efficiently express themselves within their craft."

 Holly Ryder is a South Florida based teacher, focusing mainly on contemporary movement and improvisation.

Holly’s formal training began in Georgia under the mentorship of Shannon Childers and Cherrise Wakeham, and continued at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, where she attended as a dance major with a focus on composition.
