I am an artist who believes every person has the the birth right to experience dance as a healing art form. Dance has been a part of humanity since the ancients responded to environmental rhythms within and around their bodies, which reflected the cycles in our natural world. This process allows humans to organically restore balance and connect to their deep self, cultivating a sense of belonging and compassion.
Today, we often restrict ourselves from the movements, sounds and community that may support us to release toxic energy and heal. When we allow ourselves to move beyond judgement and explore our authentic presence, our bodies naturally move towards health. I believe witnessing ourselves and others in this process can empower individuals and unite humanity.
For me, healing experiences through dance and expressive arts have transformed my life by allowing me to contact parts of myself who feel alienated, give them a space to be heard, and slowly learn to accept and integrate them. With each journey inward, I am able to live more authentically outward. I am empowered to share my discoveries using dance as a gateway to empowerment and healing.
