Those Who Inspire Me to Dance
Pina Bausch. She completely revolutionized modern dancing and her Rites of Spring is probably my existence artistically.
Maria Tallchief. She was considered America's first prima ballerina and is Native. Being Native American myself she always gave me inspiration and was my hero while studying ballet.
Svetlana Zakharova. Her performance "Revelation" inspired the piece I choreographed "The Enemy"
I find inspiration in many aspects of life but these are the dancers who primarily inspired me to be creative in my voice when it comes to modern dancing. I say inspiration is wherever you find it...but mainly it is in your heart.
