At age 12 Ms. Durbin trained under Eugene Louis “Luigi” Faccuito, one of the most famous international jazz teachers of his generation. The Luigi technique became the foundation of her teaching career. Ms. Durbin has choreographed and taught for Northwest Dance Project, Body Vox Dance, Oregon Ballet Theatre and Reed College. Most recently, she was one of four choreographers chosen for the Northwest Dance Project Chopin Project with acclaimed pianist Yekwon Sunwoo and was also a featured artist in the book Beauty is Experience: Dancing 50 and Beyond.
