“Unbound, We Howl” (2018)

This yea I had the pleasure of dancing alongside, underneath, and above 24 strong women in Alexandra Stilianos’ MFA Thesis Unbound, We Howl featuring dance, audience interaction, projection, sound and text distortion, and an overall immersive construction about the rage of feminism and representation of underrepresented gender identifications. Dancers were on stage, in the audience, and…

Intermedia Experience

As Autumn 2017 comes to a close, I sit down to reflect on the unique composition course I had the fortune to take this semester. Intermedia in dance proved to be an experience unlike anything I could have expected, and unlike any other. I feel incredibly fortunate to attend an establishment with unique tools such…

Composition and Life Context

Composition has always been a bit of a “comfort zone” course for me. I lack confidence in so many areas as a dancer and artist, but I can always confirm with myself that I make decent work in composition. I noticed recently two stipulations of this. Firstly, it’s been made very clear to me that…

Three Weeks of Minus 16

What a whirlwind. I have so many things I could say about the last three weeks. A good amount of which would not be appropriate for me to put on my professional blog. I spent the last three weeks dancing alongside professional ballerinas, feeling a lot of emotions, throwing my body around recklessly on a…

But as I embark on fall semester madness, incredible reparatory, and new possibilities, I reflect on one of the better experiences of my…

A Brief and Overly Simplistic Reflection: RYT-200

As I pack my bags to return to the lovely state of  Ohio for another incredible experience (that I cannot get over how beyond blessed I am to have such opportunities) I must reflect on this serene and imperative summer.   To fully encapsulate the depth of my experience during Om Factory NYC’s 200-hr Yoga…

Bryant Park Grooves

With YTT winding down, with an exam and now my first ever yoga class in my past, I am beginning to reflect on the last 5 weeks with Om Factory NYC’s 200hr-TT. And I must say a highlight of the entire experience was two Fridays ago when myself and 3 of my fellow yogis spontaneously…

Shaking Our Ischial Tuberosities

  Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of dancing and performing with students from Mason Gross School of the Arts and working professionals in NYC to create a fun yoga-inspired dance for the NYC Om Factory’s 2017 Summer Solstice party! Working with these incredible people that I get to spend everyday digging deep into…
