A black Southern Belle gone rogue, raptured in protest and black reappropriation, my dance is activism. I am enlightened by the cycle of reciprocity ingrained in performance as research, community partnership, and performing arts education. I create dangerous dances. I often use my choreography as a device to instigate and advocate.
Born and raised in Gainesville, Florida, I source my movement from my community upbringing and scholastic investigations of dance forms like Liturgical, Modern, Jazz, Heels/Stilletto Jazz, Ballet, Contact Improvisation, HBCU Danceline, and Auxiliary technique, Hip Hop, Stepping, Funk, West African Rhythms and Techniques, Contemporary, Afro-Caribbean Rhythms and Motifs, Vogue, Chinese Fan, Laban/Bartenieff fundamentals, and Katherine Dunham technique.
I Dance For Life
