Listen. Observe. Be Compassionate.

Artistic Statement

I dance to connect to mother earth. How we exist in this world is everything in how we treat it, ourselves, and each other. Through dance we can better understand relationship dynamics and our connections as humans existing on this planet. Dance is honest, vulnerable, open to sharing, instinctive & intuitive.

Plants still feed us our wisdom, animals still teach us our lessons, the ground beneath our feet holds us up and beckons us to lie down and listen.
