Talley is originally from Arkansas, where she studied dance for 12 years. She holds both a BFA and MFA in Acting and has studied clowning, stage combat, the Alexander Technique, and Laban, Grotowski, and Lecoq movement techniques. Living with back arthritis, Talley knows first-hand how healthy movement and alignment keep the body lithe and strong. She believes the integration of body and breath informs how we live, communicate, and pursue our intentions. Motto: Fail with pride!
