I am the new Marketing and Communications manager here at Urbanity Dance and wanted to introduce myself. I am an Artist and Author living in Boston, Massachusetts, and thrilled to bring my skills to the amazing community at Urbanity.
As an artist, I am most Intrigued by issues of communication; from how people choose to use or shun labels, to the nonverbal communication of dance. My work investigates how written and visual form can communicate together, often experimenting with format and process.
Often working in series, I strive to call attention to issues within my own communities, and help to give a point of access and understanding to those outside of the community. In this way, I hope to bridge gaps of communication too often found within different fields, and mediums.
I am fascinated by dance from a physical, personal, and interpersonal perspective. My focus is in social partner dances and I am eager to explore how dance creates nonverbal connections intensely and immediately. You can view my most recent installation project, Magnetic Movements, Here.

I am excited to bring my voice and skills to Urbanity and help the community grow. Going forward, you can expect some changes in tone and subject here at our blog. I will be working to make this platform into a forum to have deep conversations about what we do, why we do it, and what impact it has outside of Urbanity. There will be many guest writers weighing in, and you can expect a deep and academic look at the philosophy of dance, as Urbanity pushes the contemporary Dance scene forwards.
Until next week,
Marketing and Communications Manager
