I started in dance/gymnastics when I was 5 years old. I didn’t really become serious in my training until around the age of 13
When did you begin choreographing?
I’ve been choreographing as long as I have been dancing. I have always been interested in making things. I knew that I wanted to be a choreographer for a long time now. I’ve always known that I’ve wanted to choreograph but I haven’t always been sure that I’ve wanted to dance.
What inspired the creation of your piece?
Several things. For one, my 3 dancers are my biggest inspiration for the piece. The piece would not be what it is without them. I wanted to create something that harnessed that their talents and individuality. I was also inspired by a piece of poetry written by Sylvia Plath entitled “Fever 103 Degrees” which focuses on themes of destruction and purity, two contrasting natures.
