N: What have you been up to in the last year?
ID: IMPACT celebrated its fifth year as a company and we put on our fifth concert at the BU dance theater in January 2016! Since then we have been on a break and this year's ChoreoFest would be our reunion!!
N: Have you used the piece you created during ChoreoFest? In what way?
ID: Surprisingly no.. However ChoreoFest usually kicks off our company's season :)
N: What advice do you have for this year's participants?
ID: Enjoy it. Yes you will get tired, frustrated and slap happy but it is worth it. I have learned numerous things about myself, my dancers and my movement by being open to the festival and all its challenges!
N: What is your favorite memory from last year's festival?
ID: Hmm that's a tough one... I remember talking to my dancers prior to choreofest and telling them 'I know we are not suppose to plan anything but I would love to do a funny piece.' Low and behold the two, yes two themes we pulled were far from 'funny!' We all had a good laugh.
N: Where can people see you/your work these days? Any upcoming performances?
ID: ChoreoFest 2016 hopefully ;) I also started teaching an open Contemporary class at Jeanette Neill's on Wednesday nights!
