I believe it takes precision, physicality, expression, and versatility for a dancer to capture an audience with more than his or her movement. I also believe it takes experience, knowledge, commitment and intuition for an actor to capture an audience with more then his or her character expression. No mater what form of art one studies being an artist comes from within the soul and that is what I want the audience to see when I perform on stage. An artist is able to express emotion, power and excitement through movement and passion for the art form. An artist is able to take an audience from everyday life and tap into their emotions and feelings to spark their own imagination. A successful artist is one who is able to transcend an audience without them noticing until the performance is done.
