Tory Peil grew up in Ashland, OR where she studied under Sylvia Bolton.  Since moving to Seattle nearly 10 years ago she has danced with 5th Avenue Theater, Seattle Opera, The Can Can, Teatro Zinzanni and Spectrum Dance Theater.

Dance brings me back to my home base. Without it I find myself flailing through the world for a few weeks, unable to pinpoint my disgruntled outlook on life, but the minute I get back in the studio it’s as if the entire world makes more sense to me.
