In dance journalism, my primary interest is in the critical. Critical as in engaging in thoughtful analysis, and critical as in crucial, significant. I want to create dialogue (within myself/between others) around what is happening on stage, how it communicates, and why it matters, contributing to the scholarship surrounding this vital art form. I believe critical dance writing is an essential support structure to a healthy dance ecology. For me, it is an act of love.
Beginning as a staff writer for SeattleDances in 2012, I took up the mantle as Editorial Director of the organization in 2016, managing a team of 7-10 writers and spearheading the DanceCrush program, among others. As a freelance author I have published over 100 articles of dance writing as a regular contributor to SeattleDances, City Arts Magazine, and Dance International Magazine.
