our leaders

Lisa Yaconelli

“The joy of teaching art is that it gives you the freedom to see what the child has to offer, then figuring out what skills to teach them that encourages and supports those gifts.”  She received her BFA in dance from Temple University and has performed and choreographed in Athens for fifteen years. Her choreography has been featured at Atlanta’s 7 Stages Theater and the Underground Dance Society’s “Hidden in Plain Sight,” The Fringe Festival, Canopy Studio, and Floorspace. She’s performed in Philadelphia, San Diego, and in many community events in Georgia. A founding member of Warehouse Collective and Underground Dance Society, in most recent years she has co-directed the Small Box Series; a quarterly performance series that invites artists from different genres to perform in intimate spaces. Co-founder of Nimbl, Lisa enjoys teaching creative movement, modern technique, choreography, and developing community dance projects. She teaches Making Dances; an improv and choreography class for young minds ages

8-12. She lives in Athens with her husband and two sons.

Maryn Whitmore

Through art making, self discovery, and staying curious, Maryn Whitmore is committed to a creative life. After graduating with a degree in dance from the University of Georgia in 2001, Maryn toured the United States as a musician and performance artist, living on and off the road in a converted school bus. Through this experience, Maryn shaped and honed her creative process rooted in storytelling and discovered narrative. After returning from the road, Maryn created Skwhirlhaus, a backyard stage in Atlanta where creatives gathered to present work and experience community. The space featured over 50 performances from 2012 to 2016. Through her work with Skwhirlhaus, Maryn was commissioned by the High Museum of Art to create a piece for the opening of the Jaime Hayon large-scale interactive installation, Tiovivo. This work, Over The Moon!, was performed at the High in June and July of 2016. At the end of 2016, Maryn, her husband Matt, and their girls, made the move to Athens GA to continue their adventures. Today, Maryn spends much of her time devoted to shaping space for humans of all ages, giving them an outlet to express themselves on and off stage.  Maryn performs and teaches throughout Athens, is a founding member of ARThouse, and is a part-time faculty member in the department of dance at the University of Georgia. "I feel most alive when performing. Sharing this energy and love with others is my passion."

Andrea Trombetta

As artist and educator, Andrea Trombetta walks the talk of poet Rumi: "Let the beauty we love be what we do". Andrea received her BA in Studio Art and her MFA in Fabric Design from Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia.  Originally from the Chicagoland area, she grew up studying dance and visual art, knowing a career in the field would be her fate. Her artwork and creative process involve multi-media experimentation often using fabric and dance as a source for mysterious expression. Andrea's 2-D and 3-D artwork have been exhibited nationally and internationally. Currently she teaches Art Appreciation, 3-D Design, and Material Futures at the University of Georgia and Athens Technical College and also teaches Color Theory, Arts of Diverse Peoples, Movement Meditations. For the last decade, Andrea has taught ages 5-14 multimedia at children's art camps and workshops in Athens and Atlanta. Trombetta's collaborations with embodied artmaking and her ARThouse fellows have appeared in productions with Underground Dance Society, Small Box Series, Skwhirlhaus, Canopy Studio and Warehouse Collective. Andrea Trombetta carries on practicing mindful and meaningful artmaking, most recently with her daughter and greatest masterpiece, Isabella Rose.

Laura Hoffman

Somatic exploration and teaching have informed Laura’s personal and professional life for over 30 years. After college, graduating with a dual degree in Dance and Cultural History, she received a Fulbright to study with Jerzy Grotowski the polish theater director and was then invited to work with dance/theater director Anne Bogart in NYC. Psycho-social development, collaboration, and creative process were at the heart of her pursuit -how we learn about ourselves and others through improvisation and structured practice. This quest for authentic expression led her to an MA in dance movement therapy and Alexander Technique training.  While working in mental health and educational settings, Laura continued her own art making as a choreographer, filmmaker, writer, and performer presenting her work in NYC, Chicago, Los Angeles, New England, Athens. and more. As a lifelong learner and travel adventurer, she studies and includes new practices in her work such as tai chi, yoga, mindfulness skills, social-emotional learning theory and more. Having just returned from Cuba- the joy of rhythm is fresh and will certainly find its way into this summer’s camps.
