RESOLUTION FOR 2018
To find a way to balance all of my interests without letting anything go to the wayside, and to improve in all of them.
WHY DANCE MATTERS NOW
After a brief pause away from dance I’ve rediscovered how dance can be used in a therapeutic way for expression and communication. My hope is that through this art form ideas and emotions can be shared and thus a broader conversation and understanding can open up from there.
