The dream, the process and the final product of Cinq sur Cinq have adequately summated my time as a dance major at Western Michigan University. Since my acceptance into the BFA program, I have been eager to see how this project might develop. I went into this process a little weary that the dream was even possible but it proved to be more than I had ever imagined. As this project took shape the past few months, it has become evident to me that all the knowledge I have gained at Western was evolving into ...and a child shall lead them. My goal during this project, as the choreographer, lighting designer, and director, was to create a cohesive piece in which my voice could be heard "loud and clear."
