LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and the Performing Arts and has studied at the Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London. She holds an MFA in Dance from Mills College and was recently on faculty at the College of San Mateo.

About this Project
/soft/c/ embraces the multidimensionality of pleasure. By examining the contrasts of marginalized bodies against a broad spectrum of hegemonic normative constructs, /soft/c/ creates critical, nuanced musings on fluidity, intimacy, queer futurity, blackness, and power.
