I believe that dance can connect people across borders and cultures because it has the power to go before and beyond language.
What dance is, does or means evolves hand-in-hand with people’s athletic, artistic and personal development. In a community of practitioners whose ages, backgrounds and goals vary greatly, I immerse myself into several styles and settings to carve a unique, rich and balanced practice.
Poetry in motion
For me, contemporary dance is to movement what poetry is to literature. Whether narrative or conceptual, coherent or confusing, contemporary dance has artistic license to create its own grammar. The beauty of its indefinable style is that it emerges from each individual’s taste, personal story, abilities and encounters with others. Always reinventing itself, it is the most adaptable dance form of all.
I see choreography as the art of shaping ideas in space and time to share them with communities. I nurture this immaterial craft through repetitions until its ephemeral realization, the performance event. In practice, choreography can be scored, recorded, extracted from tasks, drawings or descriptions and even restaged long after its creation. Yet, it is no more tangible than the transmission of my vision through motion.
