For me, dance is the ultimate art form. Dance requires commitment of the total person in the most visceral, abstract and creative way. You are your body, and your body encompasses all- the musculature, the thoughts, the sensibilities, the awareness, the senses. As dancers, we keep our bodies alert, aware and sensitized. As dance performing artists, we use our bodies as the means of communication and expression . I believe that to live one’s life as an artist is in general is the healthiest and most fulfilling lifestyle. I see dance as the highest and also most natural art form.
