I savor wondering, cultivating a deeper knowing of the world. I defend the meta-morphic powers of dancing for mind-body connection and the culture-building strength that it has for different people. I believe that we bridge connections through deep listening, sensing and feeling through practices of artistic exploration, care and vulnerability.
