A New York native, Liz Walker's passion for movement started at a young age. Her discovery of the Gyrotonic Expansion System as a cross-training and injury prevention method in support of her dance career led to an interest in understanding the principles of Gyrotonic more deeply and sharing them herself as a teacher. She has studied Gyrotonic with Christina Stroh, Kathy Van Patten, Emily Smith and Rosemary Carnes Mestler. As a dancer, she trained at the Ballet School of Stamford and JKO School at ABT before joining Los Angeles Ballet as an inaugural company member in 2006. A graduate of Harvard College, she was the 2011 recipient of the Suzanne Farrell Dance Prize for Outstanding Artistry in the Field of Dance. With Los Angeles Ballet, Liz has performed leading roles in the Balanchine, classical, and contemporary repertory, leading to her promotion to the rank of soloist, and guesting opportunities with Boston Ballet and the Vail Dance Festival. She loves being a part of the Movement Center LA family and spending light-filled afternoons training clients in the beautiful studios by the beach.
