Barbara G. Haines

Instructor of Dance


As an internationally experienced ballerina and ballet master, I have earned valuable interdisciplinary theatre based experience over the past 30 years. I have had the opportunity to perform in classical, neo-classical, and contemporary productions as a principle and chorus dancer produced by prominent choreographers such as Maurice Bejàrt. The invaluable experience gained through my professional dance carrier influenced my continued interest in an embodied practice research to create collaborations that cross disciplines and cultural boundaries in professional and academics, traditional and non-traditional settings. My research work identifies critical aspects of performative work in one of the most famous choreography within our dance history, “”Le Sacre du Printemps”” through an Astro- Mythology viewpoint.
