Angela has been a dance musician since 1979 in the Seattle area at Pacific Northwest Ballet, University of Washington, Cornish College of the Arts and Spectrum Dance Theatre, to name a few. She has accompanied such notable dance masters as Patricia Barker, Magali Messac, Hillary Cartwright, Deborah Hadley, Bill Whitener, Elaine Bauer, Veronica Tenant and Donald Byrd.
As a trained dancer, Angela’s extensive dance background has given her great insight as an accompanist. Along with performing professionally as anactor, she has composed over 125 songs for several original classic children’s tales for Variety Plus Theatre, which she co-founded in 1994 with her husband Bob. Some compositions are included on her CDs.
“Angela’s knowledge and display of musical styles, as well as her phrasing and rhythmic sensibility, help the dancer find their own sense of timing and expression. She shapes the music for the dance.”
