Turned inside out, I dance alone or with someone, for someone or myself. Tell a story without words, paint a picture with my body … reflecting the never-ending rhythm beating inside of me, searching for the essence of expression. My body, a primal instrument, responds to a feeling, a person, a song … it cannot lie, it cannot hide, everything is revealed.
