Dancing For Your Life

Dancing For Your Life

Miscellany Editor

My work is the visual synthesis of my childhood experiences as a dancer. Through a nostalgic lens, the experience and aesthetics of the performance are captured within the context of fabrics, patterns, movement, and color. Personally and historically, dance is a way of expressing ourselves through our bodies. Being a part of this space gives the viewer a chance to become the dancer, providing an opportunity to engage the joyous emotions, movement of colors, and artifacts of performance.
