 What is one of your favorite moments from your time with the Department of Dance?

Any moment where I felt seen and allowed to just BE, without having to hide or leave parts of myself behind. I'm so grateful for the way teachers like Brian J Evans, Dani Tirrell, and Rachael Lincoln created spaces where I felt safe and compelled to dig deeper into my perceptions of self and way of moving in the world.
