I discovered my passion for choreographing while earning my minor in dance and leading the UNCo Dance Alliance. I had the privilege to assistant choreograph for multiple mainstage productions while in college, including a devised film directed by Betty Hart. My favorite credit so far is when I choreographed the tap dance for Something Rotten at the University of Northern Colorado. In addition to tap, I enjoy choreographing musical theatre jazz, ballet, and contemporary. As a choreographer, I like to take simple/common steps and see how I can manipulate them in a different way. How can I add body percussion into a regular time step? How can I change the angle of a leg to create something that is familiar and new at the same time? As a story teller, I create every movement with intention and motivation. As a choreographer, I believe that the process of teaching choreo can be just as important as the end result. I believe the rehearsal room should always be an environment that fosters creativity, diversity, and team-work.
