What inspires you to dance?

I am continually inspired by storytelling, and I admire artists that evoke such emotion on stage and in the studio. I draw inspiration from how they are able to connect with the audience and bring the story to life.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we work and perform. Long before we performed on this land, it played host to the dance expression of our First Peoples. We pay our respects to their Elders — past, present and emerging — and acknowledge the valuable contribution they have made and continue to make to the cultural landscape of this country.
