James Koroni of Enforced Arch was interviewed by Dance Advantage. Here’s a spotlight from that interview and a link to where you can read the rest:
Dance Advantage: Why did you create the Enforced Arch community?
James Koroni: All my life I have had a strong desire to sing, dance and entertain everyone. All of which was an attempt to brighten someones day.
As an adult I went through two devastating losses – each breathing new life into my love of performance art – – the death of my brother and later the loss of my father who both died of cancer.
It wasn’t until I felt the severity of my fathers illness that I knew I needed to change my own life. After he died I sought the truth behind the causes for cancer and I found an abundance of resources, including The China Study, linking many causes of cancer to our diets. This sent me on a a course of research that changed my life forever. The first step I took was adopting a vegan lifestyle, not only for my brother & father, but also for my health, the environment, and all of the animals suffering for our dinners. This discovery has filled my life with great intention.
Every moment following that day has contained yet another opportunity to inspire change through my lifestyle and as a dancer/choreographer. Dancers have a unique ability to speak to others and I value those who use this talent to create awareness.
