I have been dancing since age six but really started to get serious after a really successful experience at an arts festival. Shortly after that I enrolled in a Dance program at my local Arts School and studied for two years. Since graduating I have had a few opportunities to perform and create work as an independent choreographer. Two of my favorite original works are Thrashing on Cement in Leather and Libertaria. The first piece was a duet adapted to be performed in a basement nightclub with a cement dance floor hence the title. The performance combined very physical throw yourself at the floor movement with more subtle salsa style partnering and incorporated mixed media. Libertaria was a piece for six dancers that explored the theme of female power. I chose to incorporate the beautiful movement of traditional Japanese weapons Nunchaku into the dance to represent strength. As a dancer I have trained primarily in Contemporary and Modern technique with lots of contact improvisation experience. I have a good basis of Hip Hop, Jazz, and have some theatre experience. I really enjoy collaborating with different types of artists and my larger artistic vision is often a mixed media project. I would love to volunteer my skills in exchange for the opportunity to make dances.
