WHAT PEOPLE Wrote
You defy gravity in the most captivating ways!
"Wow!!! You are amazing to watch!
You defy gravity in the most captivating ways! I loved this piece!
I was captivated from beginning to end!...I love your music choices and I LOVE your voice...Your voice is beautiful, haunting, and I could listen to it more."
What a pleasure it must be to move like that!
"That was gorgeous. Personal but not narcissistic. Sensuous, but because of texture and elastic movement. I love how the trickiness is all rooted in weight and elasticity, so I can feel them as much as be impressed by them. Feels inventive, connecting with the immediate environment and moment. What a pleasure it must be to move like that! The music works perfect. One of the better dance videos I've watched."
You've opened my eyes to how much is possible!
This is an amazing piece! I really enjoyed how you used the stairs and the railings, etc. so inventively, as well as the strength that you have to use the door jamb and the small ledge in the corner of the inside room. Really imaginative when you changed the perspective to look down on you in the room so that the bench became the horizon. You keep the tone steady and then release it at the end. You've opened my eyes to how much is possible!
