Lori Belovin: Dancer and SoHa Dance Intern
What Moves You?
“What moves me is what I believe moves everyone – love, inspiration, hope, change. I don’t think movement should be defined by one specific motive. We live in a world that constantly challenges social, political, economic, and global issues – and in turn, challenges our personal view of the world and others. Movement allows us to explore and deliver these issues through a unique platform, and challenges others to think and respond in their own way. I think that’s the most important and most rewarding part of movement – it brings people together. And, in the words of Vincent Van Gogh, ‘Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.’ ”
Lori Belovin, a native from the Bronx, has immersed herself in the world of dance since the age of six.
