"The Wolf" is about a group of close friends who are in fear of a wolf that has been prowling around and raising havoc in their small town. They must stay together and when the wolf is finally revealed, their lives are forever changed.
" The dancers in my piece are my ‘dance family’ from Chandler Gilbert Community College (CGCC) and I am so grateful for these ladies and our amazing friendship. One of my dancers is my sister-n-law and we both have been taking modern at CGCC together for many years which has been really special. Each of these dancers has such a unique and beautiful way that they move.
We were all introduced in Rayn Hookala's modern class at CGCC and that class alone has been life changing. I know we are all so thankful for Rayn and everything her class has done for each of us.
I have been dancing for almost 20 years and I have grown more as a dancer in the last couple of years with Rayn than any other time. I started dancing in high school and I just could never stop.
I am thankful for great dance teachers in high school that helped develop the love I have for dance today. I dance because it is a therapy for me and has always been my "happy place". No matter what kind of day I am having, I am always able to dance it out and feel better. Dance is a feeling of freedom and no one can take that away from you."
