Choreographer's artistic statement

I create art to keep my soul healthy. Just as we need to eat well to stay in good biological health, I dance to stay energized and alive. I crave choreographing as a way of articulating thoughts, producing new and unique language through movement and stillness, continually extending my comfort limits and creative boundaries. I need to perform to connect with others emotionally through an interpretive, artistic medium. This recital abstractly illustrates the power of a photo album in revealing a person’s identity through movement. Thus, I hope you are also able to confront your own past to see your true identity.
