What Moves You?
“Life! The ability to take any and every experience, no matter how small or big, and being able to translate that in my body and share that with others through movement will always be the greatest wonder to me. Also, the fact that movement is constantly evolving with no expiration date and the dancer’s body is the vessel that holds that power is unimaginable.”
