Featured Choreographers
Faith Brock
Faith’s work explores the journey of accepting one's authentic self and forming bonds with others that shift our outlooks for the better. This piece investigates feelings of self-deprecation and unworthiness while opposingly showing the joy of discovering self-confidence and friendship.
Tamia Fair
Tamia’s work touches on the experience of being a black woman growing up in America and needing to hide aspects of herself to please and be accepted by others. Her work gives voice to the internal challenges she faces, along with coming into self-acceptance and community.

Corey O’Keefe
Corey’s work examines the idea that “everyone holds a reason” as opposed to the notion “everything happens for a reason.” Her piece embodies the purpose of individuality, the essence of human connection, and the beauty in our paths aligning for fleeting moments of time.

Ethan Sickles
This work is built on the choreographer’s struggles and growing through them overtime. In collaboration with the dancers, he focuses on topics of isolation, body image, and the divergent mind. This highly emotional piece strives to show the lows and highs of overcoming personal battles.

Mikayla Zavattaro
Mikayla Zavattaro’s piece explores courage within vulnerability. Through evocative movement, the dancers showcase an inner conflict between the safety of living guarded and the risks of being known. Her work considers how this disparity affects the way you express yourself, your relationships, and the empowerment of letting yourself be seen.
