New York, NY USA
We all have very different experience and privilege, and this is also something that must be taken into account, but we are still able to connect to others through our humanity; our common human experience. Dance is my way of doing this because dance is not an object, it is intangible, and therefore through dance we are able to give a part of our souls to others.
