class description:

my interest in teaching composition is not an elevation of a particular kind of politic or formula, but arrives out of a longing to meet dance at the discursive limits that begin to condense around conceptualization and realization. i want to talk about and insist upon the means, pleasures, frustrations, and impossibilities to making dances and the potency of composition-based, corporeal inquiries. my interest in teaching composition is not an elevation of a particular kind of politic or formula, but arrives out of a longing to meet dance at the discursive limits that begin to condense around conceptualization and realization. i want to talk about and insist upon the means, pleasures, frustrations, and impossibilities to making dances and the potency of composition-based, corporeal inquiries.

bio:

i was born in virginia. grew up a little bit there until i decided to move to new york city to grow up even faster. now, i'm in college, again. i've been making dances in new york since 2007. i did make a few dances before new york, but i was too confounded and frightened by dance to make dances. i follow cinema, confusion, voguing balls, erotica, and raf simons. my sister lives in virginia. her name, nadia.
