“I’m very grateful and excited to be working on this project with DanceXchange and Motion Dance Collective, to see my vision come to life. I feel the message of the piece is very important and reflects what’s happening unseen in our communities. It’s a great opportunity to shed some light on this area and hopefully leave a lasting impact on those who watch it.”
