Effective teaching and learning comes from one’s heart, and exists between the parallels of the students’ and the teachers’ imagination. Disbelief is the only boundary. Kim Gadlin has had the opportunity to experience and embody this belief while teaching in the Pomona Dance Program for the last 10 years. Her training includes studies with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, and she has performed with Joseph Holmes Dance Theatre of Chicago and the Philadelphia Dance Company. She earned a master’s in K-12 education with an emphasis in the performing arts, and is currently a master’s candidate in holistic and integrative education with an emphasis in interdisciplinary studies. She is the artistic director of Flow: Movement Education which helps individuals heal holistically through movement, music and memory. In addition, she is the acting assistant dean of the Office of Black Student Affairs for The Claremont Colleges.
