I am a Dancer, Actress, Educator, Choreographer, and Screendance artist. I use my choreography to investigate social commentary while advocating for liberation and alternative narratives. A Black American Southern Belle gone rogue, raptured in protest, my dance is activism.
I achieved my MFA in dance choreography from the University of Michigan and earned a BFA in Dance Performance and Dance in Medicine certification from the University of Florida.
I am enlightened by the cycle of reciprocity ingrained in performance as research, community partnership, and performing arts education.
Influenced by my community and academic investigations of choreography, performance, ritual, and technique- I identify as a post-modern choreographer. I generate my movement from (My)story, abstracting Black History, to craft an ever-evolving American Myth of Culture and Representation.
My pedagogy is curated to promote efficiency and longevity in dance practice and performance. I am dedicated to creative practice and arts advocacy. I use storytelling and metaphor to stimulate self-investigation. By centering joy in every movement experience, I seek to cultivate learning spaces that foster resilience and total body integration. I use embodied practice to encourage my students and collaborators to refocus and reconnect the breath cycle to the life center/pelvic floor.
