As a dancer, I'm primarily a performer but I am also a choreographer. I constantly crave to learn more about the capabilities of my body and new movement experiences that influence my artistic growth. At first, dance was only a hobby, a way to express my emotions and for the blissful pleasure of moving. As my training progressed, dance became so much more. Dance became an experimentation, an exploration of mind, body and identity, it became a struggle but in a good way. My ideas about dance expanded as I challenged myself to explore movement as a way to tell stories about personal experiences, views, and interests to create thought-provoking pieces.
