Commit to It!

This fall I am committing to a 9 month program called Dance ICONS to take a deep dive into the process of creating a work of art.

During my early dance training at North Potomac Ballet Academy later Metropolitan Ballet Theater I developed this insatiable love for choreography. Understanding the nuances of being a choreographer will undoubtedly help focus my career in dance an audience member, performer and teacher.

Back then my teacher and classmates were like mirrors. I look forward to having that dynamic and specific focus on my art. I have gained so much information crafting dances with many directors, artists and community members. Shifts that once seemed small now seem huge with each reworking or starting anew.

To the sharpening of tools for carving and shaping a well thought out dance with meaning and intent!
