I feel thankful, privileged and blessed to have been able to make a living as a choreographer, dancer, and teacher for 23 years.
As a choreographer, I celebrate, meditate, respond, protest, scream, cry and laugh about life through dance. I use dance to make the audience experience, feel, think and emote. The black box theater allows me to shatter preconceived ideas about life and momentarily transcend awareness of our present condition.
As a educator I search for what is essential and I look to reconnect people with the joy of dance. I search for each dancer’s individual voice. I love to see people bloom and develop. I am not only teaching movement, but also guiding dancers to rediscover why they dance, and what they dance.
For me, writing is not so much a pleasure as it is a civic responsibility, and as an educator, my perennial goal is to generate appreciation for and understanding of the arts and of artists.
Like integrating the mind + body + spirit:
I write + choreograph + teach.
