WHAT IS THE MEANING OF DANCE TO YOU?
Dance is demonstration of the agency and autonomy you have over you body - the marriage of your love and fear; and the resonance of the dialogue of both. I, like very many, began classical dance training at a young age - forwarded by a set of rules and patterns that eventually developed to be my «dance habitus”. Now that I am slowly coupling this work with contemporary dance and improvisation, dance has become my physical practice of reflection, a vessel for being. Dance, since then, has been a way for me to nurture my sensibility in my own creation and exploration.
