What are you most excited about for VDF 23?
"I am so excited to be with the dancers of Victoria again. I remember being blown away on my last trip and can’t wait to get in the room again and work with their incredible talents!" Why is it so important that dancers get together and share their love of dance?
"Dance is so incredibly powerful in collaboration. To be surrounded by other artists who support you, understand your passion and challenge you to grow is the ‘why’ behind our art. Working with other dances is infectious and that energy makes you feel like you can handle anything"
What advice do you have for dancers as they prepare for the VDF weekend? "Hydrate! Stay open and ready for anything and know that whatever your experience is you will walk away a better artist! Let’s go!"
