 Turn up Artistic Participation

Teamwork. Responsibility. Adaptability.

As a dancer for over 20 years, I can attest the art form has taught me much more than just dance moves. With a special love for tap dancing and leadership, I created the initiative Turn up Artistic Participation (TAP). My mission: to aid people of any age and ability to celebrate, advocate, and participate in the arts.

In Florida, COVID-19 has devastated creative economy business with a loss of $6.1 billion in revenue. In addition, 58% of of all creative workers in Florida became unemployed as of July 2020. It is my goal to help not just my city, but my state to turn up artistic participation once again!
