This year,I used something personal that I could relate to for my piece. My piece is about talking in a group or having a group of friends and you are always the outcast or you get ignored.

How many years have you been in the company?

I have been in the company for 2 years.

How many years have you been choreographing?

This is my 1st year choreographing.

What inspired you this year in your creative process?

My dance is titled Entropy, which is the scientific measurement for disorder and randomness in a given system. The concept is that life can be chaotic and stressful, but we can all find our grounding light. I use a glowing orb to represent that light. This is the largest choreography project of my career, and I am incorporating a prop for the first time, so it is an experimental process for me.
