Dorfman  has taught for schools and dance companies throughout New Jersey and the United States, including Limon Institute. She has created over 60 works for the Carolyn Dorfman Company eleven-member ensemble, and her work has been hailed by critics as “ingenious” (Star Ledger) and “emotionally resilient” (New York Times). 

"I am delighted to be returning to Centenary College to teach a master class this summer. Sharing my art and process in educational and community settings is an integral part of my professional life. I began my teaching career at Centenary College in 1980 and it was an extraordinary time and place for me to grow. I return with gratitude, great memories and the promise of greater collaborations to come, including a CDDC performance at Centenary in March 2012 and more."Carolyn Dorfman
