About the Workshop |

The vocabulary of the class and the workshop is a melting pot of different contemporary and modern styles and ideas, ranging from American, European, and Middle-Eastern influences, which will be explored in an improv-based class and a piece of choreography created by me.

A Quote that Inspires Me |

“It is a continual search and a very painful search, a struggle.  You are left entirely alone to confront life and the experiences you have gained and, all on your own, you must try to make the things you have always known seen, or at least sensed. It is about finding something which needs no question.”
