“I am a professional dance artist, choreographer, dance teacher, Pilates instructor, video dance maker, and an advocate for movement in the education system. More so than all of these things, I am first a mover. I have a deep passion for storytelling through dance and movement, and believe in the power to transform the mind and body through these facets. I thrive on helping others discover the fullness of their movement potential because I believe that movement has the capacity to create change from the inside-out. Our bodies can express emotion and teach creativity in a way that nothing else can. Through my choreography, video dance work, performances, workshops, and dance instruction, I aim to impart a genuine connection of body and mind, instill personal kindness to ones body, and evoke genuine emotional expression through movement.”
