Yvonne Winborne is originally from Philadelphia, PA, and is currently based in Brooklyn, NY. Yvonne obtained her B.S. in Childhood and Early Adolescent Education and Dance Minor from The Pennsylvania State University and her M.A. in Dance Education from New York University. She is trained in ballet, modern, hip-hop, West and East African dances, step, heels, and street jazz and has danced internationally in Ireland and Uganda. After starting the dance curriculum at New Bridges Elementary School in 2015, Yvonne transitioned to the field of teaching artistry. For the past several years she has worked as a teaching artist for Urban Arts Partnership and Lincoln Center Education, along with freelancing at several camps and studios. Yvonne believes that dance should be accessible to all and approaches her teaching practice with a focus on cultural responsiveness and mental health awareness. Yvonne also teaches heels and dance fitness classes under her own brand, “Vibin’ With Vonna, LLC” while being a professional dancer in the commercial dance industry. Yvonne is very excited to join the Dancing Classrooms faculty as one of the new Associate Directors of Curriculum and Professional Development and looks forward to supporting the teaching artists as they continue to grow in their artistry!
