I like to think that you imbued The Ark at American Dance Festival with your super starpower energy and that I was one of the students who was lucky enough to feel it. At one of the improv jams, I imagined it moving within me like some kind of ethereal sprite guiding my movement within the space. When I was there taking class or rehearsing for a performance, I would often think of what your time was like at ADF; if we had experienced similar struggles, what you learned about yourself as an artist/human... I was challenged intensely by my teachers and I transformed in a major way from my time being there. I wanted to know if you had felt that too.
I paid much more attention to your career after ADF. I eagerly watched you SLAY performance after performance, watched how you're changing the world with @raisingmalawi , and I've watched you speak up for so many people whose voices and struggles are often hushed and ignored.
Thank you for daring to be different, for constantly challenging and shaking up the status quo, for standing in the front for those who have continually been silenced, and for inspiring me and so many other artists to follow suit.
You are a FIERCE source of power for me as a dancer, performer and human, and I thank you for that.
Happy Birthday 🖤 .
