"As a choreographer, I enjoy building upon, cultivating and enhancing my experience as an artist, bringing forward possibilities for creativity and artistic development. I enjoy engaging as a curious person, choreographer, performer and teacher nationally and internationally. It is so rewarding to spend time with artists across the globe, sharing, dreaming and evaluating the interesting journey of being an artist. Thank you fellow artists." Mariah Maloney
