“I am honoured and humbled to be part of the next chapter of AXIS Dance Company. My professional career started with AXIS in 2001 under the artistic direction of Judy Smith; I will always be indebted to Judy for bringing me into the wonderful world of this company. AXIS is where I saw people like me performing for the first time, discovered new possibilities for movement, questioned the traditions of dance, and gained the desire to go beyond my own dreams. I am grateful to the board, the staff, the company members, and to Marc Brew for trusting me to lead this continuing journey that we will travel together. I am excited to start working together with this amazing group of people, meeting and building our audiences, and continue sharing AXIS’s vision and artistry with our community and the wider world.”
