She has worked with students of all ages, and finds each endeavor to be a mutual learning experience, enriching in its own unique way. Whether directing, choreographing, teaching, or performing, Corinne’s values remain the same. She is passionate about the power of performing arts as a catalyst for social change. She believes theatre has the potential to promote empathy, understanding, open dialogue, and reflection for both participants and audiences alike, and strives to infuse these values in every project she takes on.
“Theatre allows us to converse with our souls—to passionately pursue and discover ways of living with ourselves and others. We are all artists, and theatre is a language. We have no better way to work together, to learn about each other, to heal, and to grow” –Michael Rohd
