Kori grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, and graduated from Denison University in 2003 with a BFA in Theater and Contemporary Dance. A few years and a dozen odd jobs later, she went back to school and began a career in Anesthesia. Her parents worked in the sciences, hence anesthesia, but she also had the kind of quiet but beautiful childhood that predisposes a person to poetic things. She practices the art of weaving these two lives of art and science together; balancing sense with un-proofed expression and certainty with what there is to discover in following a hunch. Improvisation is an opportunity to play in the unfolding of time and experience–to simultaneously perceive and create meaning. Kori feels very lucky to be part of JKLM Studio and SeaBus; to be dancing with wonderful people!
