Levine has lived in Charlottesville since 2010 and has spent the last six years teaching dance, Pilates, yoga, and as dance faculty at Piedmont Virginia Community College. Her classes have a strong emphasis on alignment and form, and honoring individual limits while pushing boundaries.

She is a current company member in both concorDance Contemporary (Crozet, Virginia) and Progeny Dance (Lexington, Virginia).
