I started dancing jazz and hip pop as a hobby when I was 16. I didn't think about being a professional dancer as my career until I found dance as an exploration and expression of life and living.
My artistic practice and techniques are developed through my education, from which I’ve built my dance vocabulary. There are many resources providing knowledge of different areas and techniques like Cunningham, flying low, UltimaVez vocabulary, improvisation, contact improvisation and partnering. The wide variety of information for the mind and body has been essential for my development.
Life experience, especially the tough ones, they are my inspiration as a dancer.
I thought this would be a place where I could gain and share through dance because of its openness and generosity to share dance with the audience and the world.
I discovered that sometimes dance is a therapy for relief. Yet, good arts is a product of experiencing struggles in life. Therefore, whenever we go through a storm in our life, our art will be as bright as the sun in the sky.
