TEACHING ARTIST

First and foremost, I consider myself a educator. Even in my artistic process I seek to to educate through my choreography. I believe that through art I can begin to enact social change by spreading awareness, building tolerance, and creating connections with the audience. In the classroom I believe I can positively influence my students by bringing them into the artistic process with me. 

I am a fiercely passionate teacher and creator. I do nothing with lackluster intentionality but burst through each door and each wing with my fully vulnerable heart and mind at the disposal of the students and audience as I push for more from each individual as well as myself. It is my full commitment to my work which engages people, and brings us forward together.
