Niri grew up in Brooklyn, New York and is a lover of exploration, creativity, public spaces, games, movement, music, and improv. She believes other ways of doing things are possible and is interested in learning more about how community, spaces, and human interaction can foster these things! Niri is fascinated by the human experience and interested in subverting and unlearning ideas and "truths" that may keep us separate, hurting, and limited. She studied anthropology and has worked at The Relationship Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching communication and relating skills that foster compassion and empathy, in a society filled with blame shame and judgment. Now at Earthdance, Niri is discovering new ways of relating with others and herself, through movement and body exploration.
