Artist's Statement
Moving is my life. I love moving, helping others to discover their movement ability and I adore watching others move in their daily lives. Physical quirks, habits, and movement customs intrigue me. The everyday human is easily found in my work. I utilize gestures, found movement and new movement to enhance or to give an impetus to the dance technique. I also truly enjoy making work that will give cause for the audience to feel something other than the "oh, that was lovely" feeling. My work often juxtaposes humor with some other deeper emotional experience. I also work heavily with contact and partnering.
