About

I dance because I am inspired to move, but I create dance because I am inspired to move people.

My impulses to create grow out of ideas about human connections, everyday life, interactivity, and commonalities among strangers. I feel an urge to create and offer performance-based experiences that foster community, that ask questions, and that bring the subtleties of life into the forefront. Collaboration is crucial in my creative process, and I often seek out opportunities to work with composers, sound designers, and installation artists in my work. In my choreography, I am excited by the possibilities of people moving through space, and dance moving through their bodies. I like to see the hard work and the intense focus that comes with problem solving in both spontaneous composition and choreography.

Thanks for being here,
