I would most accurately describe myself as a Pure Creative type with a Dancers Heart embracing a Multi Media Performance approach.
Growing up in NY I embraced as many forms of art as I could fit into a day! Modern Jazz and Ballet, Hip Hop, Musical Theatre, Drawing/Painting, Voice lessons, Madrigals and Piano. I studied many different art forms however, through the years Dancing always held a special place in my heart. Despite my love for music and visual art, I eventually recognized Dance as my purest form of self expression.
As a young adult, I shied away from the conventionality of the Fine Arts world and made the choice to pursue an independent performance career. In 2008, I attended the first ever Hoop Convergence held outside of Carrboro, NC and was blown away by the grace, talent, and skill of some of the most accomplished Flow Artists and Hoop Dancers in the World! I was completely captivated and inspired by this emerging movement art form and immediately began to explore combining prop manipulation with my technical dance/theatre back ground . For the past decade, I have passionately practiced and studied Hoop Dancing ever since. Performing at events such as Castle McCulloch MArdi GRas and Beer Fear Bash, The Burlington Carousel festival, Camel City Bikefest, North American Body Painting Championships, Cliffs of the Neuse State Park, Active City Streets, Goldsboro Art Council, Mini Maker Faire, and many other private functions.
Presently, I enjoy performing and entertaining statewide and aspire to go national. I believe my greatest strength as a performance artist is my outgoing personality, creative versatility, ability to improvise, an intimate understanding of my props, sharp ear for music and a fluid, captivating stage presence. I am also very open to and enjoy connecting and collaborating with artists of all kinds, it has positively helped her grow as individual and as a creative.
In the future, I plan to touch others with love and inspiration through the art of Hoop Dance, provide a creative outlet for the underprivileged , and promote uninhibited creative thinking in the world of dance through my own unique performance pieces.
