A collection of scholarly interests compliment my choreographic and performance activities. My research interests in the dance field have gained depth and focus through my years of continued engagement in these capacities, and I am actively involved in advancing the study and dissemination of the dance form in areas of choreography, technique, interdisciplinary collaboration, anatomy, pedagogy, and cultural and historical relevance.
