Wildance is an experiential, wilderness based, dance performance project. It is the expression of my life's dream to integrate my two passions: dance and wilderness. Wildance creates an intersection of dance, wilderness and human relationship
....through dance improvisation, mindfulness practice, and immersion in nature
we connect with the elements and each other, sharing the depth and beauty of that collective connection through our dance.
photo by @daltonjohnsonmedia The intention of the Wildance Project:
the alchemy and transformative power
of collaboration between artist and audience, sharing and expressing our feelings of love and connection with nature and with each other
through dance. Wildance hopes to inspire others to seek their own relationship with nature
, to sow the seeds of radical love, to encourage sensitivity and responsibility
. Wildance aspires to ignite passion and playfulness
in life.Wildance adventures
will be documented through visual media, photography, video, or film leading up to live performance and gallery installations.

, I am a passionate dancer, outdoor adventurer, and world traveler, I am committed to spreading the spirit of adventure and exploration through my work in the world. My intention is to nurture and support embodied, passionate living through dance, creativity, and mindfulness practices. More about me. Wildance is the expression of my life's dream
to integrate my two passions: dance and wilderness. In each of these passions lie the key to my own spirit.
I feel most alive, vibrant, and deeply connected to a power greater than myself when I am dancing, when I am breathing crisp mountain air, sleeping under the endless expanse of stars and sky, surrounded by warm red rock canyon walls. When I am present, immersed in the moment and tuned in
I feel the healing happen in mind, body and spirit. This feeling of joy brings with it an excitement for life, a commitment to living and caring for my body and a bond with wilderness and the elements that affirms my sense of belonging- that I am a part of this earth, that we are a family of humans, creatures, plants and stars- through this feeling of love I am inspired to care for all beings.I hope that sharing this joy will help others
to feel this powerful connection, to understand through body, soul, spirit, mind, or heart- that we are united through this intricate web of life. That we are responsible for each other. That we have the capacity to care for all beings everywhere.
It is possible. To Listen. To Respond.
