She is known for her captivating stage presence that imparts authenticity and raw emotion. “When I dance, I feel free, I feel invincible. Through dance, I feel I am able to impart to others my appreciation of life, of being in the moment. My art gives me the visual stage to inspire hope, and I love being able to express my passion from the very core of my being. When I dance my body speaks for me in ways that words cannot express. When I sing, I learn to be more honest. I want to dedicate my life to reminding people of the joy of living, and specifically, the joy of living in Their bodies."
