“It’s about honoring people as individuals first”
Collective Moments Dance Company was established on January 16th, 2021 by Kaylee Mahan. Kaylee has created this company in hopes to share her passion for choreography, movement, and expressing the importance of honoring dancers as individual people.
“What interests me in choreographing, dancing, movement, etc, is the magic that takes place from shared space. There is something that happens that you can't create on your own.
Life is a collection of moments in time, that are most of the time, shared.
It is important to me as a choreographer to acknowledge dancers as individual people, in regards to movement, training, creating, and sharing. Creating work for me is not about who can look like me doing my moves. We are all different, different bodies, minds, experiences. We must try and Honor ourselves and each other as our own individuals and then those collective moments that follow.
As an artist and director, I strive to acknowledge the importance of conversation and advocacy for mental health in dance and ourselves.
So let's get to moving and grooving.
