"It illuminates my soul and charges my energy. I see the way the spirals and connectivity in my movement brings me closer to the waves around me. I am inspired from human interactions and the way dance weaves its way into it. I prepare everyday knowing that dance can impact anyone’s life the way it did mine. That’s why I want to advocate and support students who befriend dance in their life, and bring those to it who haven’t discovered it yet. Dance breeds human connection through touch, and senses. I want students to develop a stronger communication with each other through those senses."
