Dance Performance

Freelance Artist

I am drawn to collaborative multi-faceted projects and work. I am compelled by the ability to continually explore, discover, and research through movement. The intimacy, immediacy, vulnerability, and empowerment of movement fascinate and drive my artistic being. My performance experiences and skills range in a wide variety of formats and types including stage, site-specific, dance for camera, theatre, opera, and improvisational. I love taking command of the stage and audience focus while also fully connecting, moving, and integrating with the community of dancers on stage. Artists I have worked with include; KT Neihoff, Nicole Bradley Browning, Heidi Jones Eggert, Heidi Carlson, Christine Cali, Kim Epifano, Michele Antonioli, Steve Teran, Joy French, and Linda Murphey. Along with dance productions, I have performed in theatre and opera productions as a dancer. I performed with local Missoula Professional Dance Company Bare Bait Dance in the Spring of 2015. I have also worked in a wide range of styles through my training and experiences including: modern, contemporary, jazz, tap, ballet, hip hop, musical theatre, contact improvisation, partnering, and heel work.
