Mare teaches at the Tony-award winning Denver Center for the Performing Arts and has been a guest teaching-artist in many schools and institutions, including the University of Colorado, Boulder; University of Colorado, Colorado Springs; CEPT University in Ahmedabad, India; and 50+ other locales.

Mare trained extensively with masters and creators of the Viewpoints and Suzuki (physical theatre) methodologies at the University of Washington; in Tokyo and Kanazawa, Japan; and with Anne Bogart, Tina Landau and members of the SITI (Saratoga International Theater Institute) Company at Skidmore College and in SITI’s New York studios.
