ARTIST STATEMENT

 

For me, dance is used as a release of emotion and provides me with a sense of self accomplishment. As a performer I wish to share my expression and inspire audience members. My dedication and passion for dance has permeated all aspects of my life, creating a driven and hardworking work ethic. Through dance, performance, and choreography, I enjoy developing connections with other dancers and feeding off of their energy to discover new movement. With dance, my successes and discoveries are unlimited.

TEACHING STATEMENT

As an educator of dance I understand the importance of creating knowledgeable and versatile dancers through teaching sound technique and correct alignment. To teach correct alignment, knowledge of anatomy is necessary. A variety of styles will be explored through many training elements such as imagery, risk-taking, and critical thinking. My students will be motivated and provided with critiques that challenge them mentally and physically. Through a friendly relationship and also discipline, my students will be encouraged to become the best that they can be. I wish to inspire my students to follow their dreams. I will also take inspiration from them to be the best teacher I can be.
