I don’t dare title myself a “Dancer” by any professional standard.

But…I am professionally at home on stage and in motion. Being frequently surrounded by fantastic dancers, I get to immerse myself in their talents and become part of THE DANCE. It amazes me that their bodies can reach incredible heights of power in action and inspire even greater heights of emotion.

In jeans, sweats, lycra or chiffon…

Despite our limitations, we move to live.

We walk.

We reach.

And, if we BREATHE

…We DANCE!
