Eri Funahashi Geen started dancing at the age of four in Japan where she was born. She later moved to Canada and proceeded with her dance training under the direction of Nadia Veselova Tencer at the Academy of Ballet and Jazz. In 2010 she graduated from Rambert School (UK) where she obtained her Bachelor of Arts in Ballet and Contemporary Dance. During her studies, she trained with teachers such as Ross McKim, Amanda Britton, Jackie Barrett, and Chris Wright among others. Furthermore, she holds a Bachelor of Arts in Business Management, which was obtained at Sophia University in Japan.
Her professional career is twofold. She started as a Project Manager at Microsoft Japan. This experience made her rediscover her strong passion for dance, which is influenced not only by her training in ballet and contemporary, but also practices in jazz and street dance.
As a dancer, Funahashi Geen has toured Europe with Illo Tempore Ballet Company in collaboration with Schlote Productions GmbH. In 2013 she joined Teatrul de Balet, Sibiu (Romania) where she performed in works such as "Romeo and Juliet," "Four Seasons," "Scheherazade," "Capriccio Espagnol," and "Ionesco Trilogy." Her continuing desire to explore body movement, and her current interests in somatic practices and pedagogy has led her to join the MA CoDE program since October 2016.
