Hi, I’mVanessa

About 

When our bodies become an instrument for creating art and meaningful expressive works, we are on to something sublime. I spent a long time performing other people’s works, both as a dancer and as a singer, but one day I decided that it was time to create my own vision.

Embodied Goddesses is my latest project, and we’ve combined spirituality, original music, choreography, written word, philosophy, and art. It’s really something special and holistic, and we’re so excited to share it with you! 

I was born in Salzburg, Austria and grew up on the Central Coast of California. I spent one year studying at the Conservatoire Municipal de Garches, Saint Cloud, France and then received a degree in Political Science, International Relations from the University of California at Santa Barbara. I subsequently spent 16 years living in New York City as a professional dancer and singer, and also worked as a research associate at the Council on Foreign Relations.

Music

I studied piano at the Idyllwild School of Music and the Arts and at the Conservatoire Municipal de Garches – St. Cloud in Paris, France. 

I trained in classical voice at the University of California at Santa Barbara and in New York City with Jane Seaman and Janet Steele (CUNY).

I’ve had the pleasure of performing many works of musical theater, classical, and choral music and also many musical projects in the recording studio and for film.

I dabble with percussion, like djembe and doumbek, various recorders and flutes, and have been known to collect strange instruments like the vielle roux and various okarinas!

Here’s to bringing more music into all of our lives!

Dance

I studied ballet at the Academy of Dance in San Luis Obispo, The Academy of Ballet in San Francisco, Boston Ballet Summer Program, Idyllwild School of Music and the Arts, the University of California at Santa Barbara, California, and with Edward Ellison in New York City.

I spent six seasons dancing with the Metropolitan Opera Ballet in New York and had the pleasure of working with many fabulous choreographers.

Dance your way through life and never stop!
