I am fortunate to have grown up as a dancer, and having worked as a performer, creator and educator for twenty-plus years, I am still learning to find my feet.

With the passage of time, I appreciate ever more greatly the creativity, connectivity, discipline, intuition and strength that arise within our bodies.

Dance offers a depth of being that profoundly impacts our cognitive, emotional and physical responses to the world around us.
