My teaching and choreographic process aims to tap into and harness the emotional and psychological intricacies of the human psyche. By creating a judgement-free safe environment, I am able to facilitate a healthy and expansive view of oneself as an artist. There is no wrong or right, there is only you. Liberating ourselves from these negative notions, allows dancers to tap into their intuitive way of moving. Thus, dancers work from a place of acceptance which helps develop their unique voices.
