Trillium Dance Collective is a dance and movement organization based in Seattle, WA. Our goal is to adapt our unique technical background, and create contemporary movement for the screen.
Contemporary dance is the abstract coalescence of all forms of dance, while rooted in Western technique, it is not beholden only to that form; it is the continuation and evolution of modern technique, and as such, draws heavily upon each individual’s specific training. Utilizing my eclectic background in contemporary, hip-hop, and judo, I strive to create a new dynamic form of dance. Judo’s gentle but strong weight manipulation, breaking’s dynamic floorwork, popping’s contrasting fluidity and punctuation, and classic ballet technique inspire and move me to create a new aesthetic.
I find myself investigating the intricacies of texture and dynamic. Playing in the folds of space and time. Trying to embrace the struggle of creativity in a changing world.
Moving fully, feeling deeply, breathing constantly
Dancing allows me to drift beyond empty space. Here a current swiftly fills my body and the extremities of mental fatigue fade away. My focus is unclear, maybe a general concept yet no exact certainty. Vigorously I fight for a pathway while softly being touched by the continual slight breeze I leave behind. My chest is filled with fire bursting forth through the borders of my veins. As the fire fills my lungs, I sink into a deep trance. Therefore, I dance, I move, I create, I search to never forget this feeling.
I am currently a sophomore at George Mason University's School of Dance. I started dancing when I was four years old with an emphasis in classical ballet, and I have always enjoyed the expressive nature of the art form. In my current training I have been exploring the balance of athletic and intellectual demands within dance as well as expanding my modern dance vocabulary. I hope to continue to making dance a foundational part of my life.
