"" I grew up in a big multi-cultural family that taught me a great deal about diversity! Being a Jamaican-Indian and learning two ways of life and even being able to combine the two, has open my mind to seeing the world through a wider spectrum. I am interested in researching how the hybrid of two cultural movements create a new artistic element.""

Research Description

Collision of Movement
Dance plays a valuable role in many cultures. It is sometimes the heart and soul of a community. Through out the 2015-2016 school year I will be choreographing a piece that engulfs movement from Modern Contemporary and Traditional Kathak. I will be participating in a one week Dance Fellowship at the University of Trinidad & Tobago, that will help me understand the specific technique, history, and artistic qualities Modern and Kathak posses. There will also be a one on one Q&A forum with professionals in this field. Gathering all this valuable information will guide my creativity to form a piece that will support the meaning of Diversity.
