Utah Repertory Dance Theatre / Rose Wagner Auditorium

In February 2016, I was invited to participate in an exciting dance concert event at my dance "Alma Mater" Utah Repertory Dance Theatre. I along with 3 other choreogaphers were given seven dancers and four hours to choreograph a new dance, followed by the concert-staged performance the same day. At the event, I premiered "Refuge," my choreographic response to the Syrian refugee crisis.
