  • Your responses...

  • Sara S. - I find myself very inspired by a great piece of music, a good story- something exciting, mysterious and suspenseful - can be a source of inspiration.
  • Sean H. - I found recent inspiration in the work of Cari Ann Shim Sham*, whose work expands ideas of what is possible in the world of performance. Using video and projection, she helps create worlds that are vivid and refreshingly unique.
  • Truly B. - I am inspired by my children and their ability to create without caring about how it is received. They create movement from the heart; their joy in dance is utterly contagious!
