Center for Dizziness and Balance

This is the teaching portal for Tyler Paige. I will list all of my teaching materials here, like syllabi, workshops, and lectures.

The throughline between my teaching and my creative practice is to find useful disorientations: misheard phrases that spark interest; quick glances at the clock when a second feels strangely longer; sudden vividness when a truism feels deep. Therefore, the name here is taken from a rehabilitation center seen driving 65mph down the Garden State Parkway—the center between dizziness and balance.
