“I like to use dance to bring happiness to others, and I enjoy inspiring others to join in dance for health, wellness, and community.”
In 2020, when the world shut down, and I was stuck at home for school and dance, I was able to connect with others from around the world through dance. Taking a class via Zoom with dancers from Paris, Australia, and NYC while I was in my house in Colorado allowed me to be a part of something bigger than myself. It brought me joy and connection during a dark time. Even during regular times, dance has taught me so much and helped me to realize how to celebrate the good days and dance through the bad.
Dance is a narrative, and I’m always happy to share a story through movement. I like to use dance to bring happiness to others, and I enjoy inspiring others to join in dance for health, wellness, and community.
