"I choose dance as my form of communication and self expression because I feel speaking through movement is the natural global language. In addition, I hope that my body and movement can serve as a vessel for social change and awareness. My dancing is driven by my devotion to a cause and a desire to express truth. If I can spark an emotion or idea in an audience member that leads to a positive change, then I have accomplished my goal. In a sense, I dance to be larger than myself." -Tracey Katof
