Describe you and your work

I am a socially engaged interdisciplinary artist and educator currently focused on supporting adults in developing agency through dance and infusing dance into the lifestyle culture of NWA by offering weekly opportunities for self-directed dance exploration, dance and theatre training, as well as choreographing, directing, and performing.

My performance (and visual) work grapples with social, environmental issues, and sexuality, while playing in the realms of longing and joy. I employ collage to activate divergent thinking and give the audience and dancers opportunity to connect with their own mystery and power.

Additionally I organize multi-genre performance events and collaboration events.
