What is happening in the world today?
Unfortunately nothing new.
As artists we have a special way of getting through situations.
How many times have you seen a piece of artistry, heard a song make you cry, read a book that you couldn't put down, watched a dance that gave you chills.
Art speaks to humans on a level that words have an inability to touch. Art teaches beyond the mind, it allows you to experience something. And when you have an EXPERIENCE, nobody will ever have a good enough rebuttal to take that away from you.
NOBODY can tell you that your experience wasn't real.
As artists we have the opportunity to give people those experiences. To give them a quiver in their soul that nobody can convince them was false. The way we communicate through our dance, in my humble opinion, has more effect than anything we could ever say.
We have the power in our bodies to make people FEEL.
People have asked me time and again why I love to perform, and my answer is always "Because it's the only time I am sure everyone is listening and I have the power to show them something."
Feeling helpless? Don't know what to do? Create art. Make people FEEL.
“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
