As a Pacific Island American dancer, I feel called to spread joy through art. Whether en route to taking or leading a dance experience my aim is to communicate the importance performance art as vehicle for expression. It is imperative that we gain diverse perspectives in the process allowing room for various types of storytelling and sharing. A curiosity and sense of play guide explorations of sameness and difference as well as partnerships. I am dedicated to working with dancers to help them find their choreographic voice to say something consequential. Let’s create dance art that cuts to the heart of the matter.
