I began dancing as an apprentice for Sparacino Company Dancers in Houston, Texas performing Salsa, Tango, Ballet, and Swing. My background in Martial Arts, an interest in athleticism and health helped guide me in my development as a dancer.
The excitement of dance and desire to carve the potential of my body led me to continue searching for more moving experiences. Inspired by Bill T. Jones, Martha Graham, Charlie Chaplin, Pina Bausch, Alvin Ailey, Butoh, and Gregory Hines - just to name a few, I found the freedom and capability to articulately and expressively communicate without the use of words.
Dance reminds me what I am capable of when my mind says "I can't."
"The body is the instrument of the soul, let it play."
