As the great Pam Borrow once said, “dancers; they touch you like no one else can”. This wise sentiment has driven my creative path throughout the last decade of post-SCA life. It’s no secret that as a dance graduate you are pretty much screwed. After three long dark years in the theatre building, I had no job or ministry prospects outside of once a year at Everywoman. So instead I decided to use my new found choreography skills to “dance my way” through my career. While others marched down a straight path to success, I shimmied and high kicked my way through more study, internships and borderline slave labour. To onlookers of my life path, it possibly looked like madness, however those same three years of college had bent the ear of my heart towards the Creators voice. Following His soft wise voice turned my steps into a dance. There is no other answer to the question of how my Adv. Dip in Contemporary Dance set me on the path to where I am today.

College didn’t just teach us things in the traditional sense, it kind of kneaded it into our spirit in a way that never leaves you. For me, it kneaded creativity into my soul and it kneaded the rhythm of the Holy Spirit into my steps. These invaluable traits I have used again and again; from the way I deal with our most difficult clients to the way I make my breakfast. As my young company grows, I have big dreams of bringing this sweet blend of creativity and the Holy Spirit to an industry that desperately needs Him.
