Ursula is an exceptionally experienced and talented instructor with over twenty years of experience as a performing dance artist as well as a dance educator.

Ursula Perry, a native Houstonian, has had an extensive professional career as a performing dance artist and educator spanning over two decades. 

In 2002, she completed the BFA Ballet program at the University of Utah. After performing for numerous companies across the United States, she joined Repertory Dance Theatre in 2013. There she has performed several works, including those by Donald McKayle, Martha Graham, Jose Limon, Doris Humphrey, Ishan Rustem, and Lar Lubovitch.

Her tenure at RDT has yielded to an ever enriching understanding of the need to create opportunities for the young and old to learn and heal through movement. The physical being is not only a tool, but a storage space for the human story. It is her belief that the power of movement and grit of raw physicality can heal both the body and the mind.
