Corinne trained and worked professionally as a jazz and modern dancer in Chicago and New York from 1971 to 1979.

Corinne taught jazz dance as a faculty member of the University of Wisconsin Extension and at Edgewood High School. Later in her career she turned to computer graphics, computer art, and digital animation.
