Performance

My main technique training is in ballet, including various levels of RAD, Vaganova, and some Cecchetti as well as pointe and character classes in studios, academies, and college.

Since high school, I have come in contact with modern dance and improvisation and world dance styles, such as brief workshops in butoh and flamenco. My dance training at Texas State was Hawkins-based fundamentals, but I’ve been a participant in ACDF for three years and have enjoyed classes from various modern and contemporary styles like Limón and Graham. While living in Houston I took a handful of Gaga + Dancers classes from Amy Morrow.

I continue to be a student to many dance forms, even though performance, technique teaching, and choreography are not my main focus.


Below is a link to a performance art piece I worked on with my close friends in 2010. This Butoh-inspired piece was a collaboration between the Houston-based band LIMB (now consisting of James Templeton) and two other artists, Lauren Babcock/Cardenas and Carmen Torres.

Below is a link to an art-piece I created for my art major friend, Emily Eaton. We worked on a video creation of dance and visual manipulations. All of the editing was done by her. The dancing was fluid and improvisational.

Below is a link to an artistic collaboration for my Music for Dancers class in 2014. It is titled “Waking Dream” and features a performance by South Korean piano performance major Hyun Jung Im from Texas State University’s Music Department. Video editing is still in-progress.
