I am a dance artist making opportunities for people to experience the connective and reflective power of groove. Having grown up social dancing at my dad’s rock band’s gigs, I discovered at a young age how poignant and spirited it can be to feel groove yourself and share it with others. I’ve been fortunate to have amazing mentors who’ve helped me cultivate this outlook, inspiring me to contribute to others by creating performances, teaching and thinking about dance with groove as the base. Guided by this inspiration and a fondness for jazz and the American vernacular, I work to help people feel the groove in their experiences, connecting to history, themselves and one another through embodying music. For more on how I do this, please visit the ‘Performance,’ ‘Teaching’ and ‘Thought’ sections of this website.
