As an artist of many facets, it has been a true challenge to return to dance after a two year sabbatical. During these past two years, I have explored a new form of creative expression, Aerial Silks. My newfound love for aerial movement introduced me to a world of performance art that I have never experienced before. I have to thank Aerial Evolution for their encouragement and support while I journey from aerial dance back to my contemporary roots. Upon my return to the studio, I explore not only my personal passion of dance but my professional passion of American Sign Language, both of which I have earned a Bachelor's degree. Now is my opportunity to merge my double major into a unique form of creative expression. It is my privilege to join Sacramento Contemporary Dance Theatre as I transition from the silks to the stage, lending my hands and my skills as an ASL Interpreter to the cause.
