PERFORMANCE ART. Kris Wheeler has been making for over 20 years. Kris Wheeler came to Seattle to study Skinner Releasing Technique in 1974.

Having danced with Danny Lepkoff for a year in the early 70's, she introduced contact improvisation to the Seattle community and hosted regular contact jams.

She is a psychotherapist with 23 years of private practice, and continues to dance and perform locally.
