Prof. Burick has been teaching at CCSF since 1980

For the past 14 years my primary focus has been tap, although I still love my Saturday morning modern dance class and believe that every dance form contributes in a unique way to the development of every very unique dancer. At UCSB I studied Humphrey-Limon technique with Alice Condita and Rona Sande, Laban Wigman with Isa Berghson, and Graham with Cristine Lawson, David Hatch-Walker and Ross Parks. My M.A. in Creative Arts Education focused on dance from multiple cultural perspectives. My training in tap ranges from study at the Betty Lee Dance Studio in Ohio in the 1950's and 60's to conferences, festivals and master classes with the likes of Camden Richmond, Steve Condos, Brenda Bufalino, Jean Martin, Robert Reed, Diane Walker Jimmy Slide and Arthur Duncan over the past 25 years. I am inspired by and love taking class from pace-setting contemporary artists such as Savion Glover, Mark Mendoca, Andrew Nemr, Derrick Grant and John Kloss. In the early 80's I performed with two modern dance companies: Nancy Karp &> Dancers and KADEKA Dances for Kids. In the mid 90's I performed with Lynn Jassem's Stepfire Tap Ensemble. I consider myself an ever-aspiring and evolving jazz/rhythm tap dancer who loves to share her passion for tap, in particular, and dance in general.
