Hey, I'm Graham. Currently you'll find me dancing with the Nederlands Dans Theater 2. When i'm not dancing, you will usually not find me at home.

I travel often, read endlessly, and viciously devour podcasts. Dance has opened me up to myself, the world, and the areas I feel passionately about - areas which I feel I can share with the world. In terms of movement, rhythm is the backbone of my vocabulary. Tap dance and musical theater were big parts of my early exposure to the arts. While I decided to pursue contemporary ballet, these aspects have developed over time, creating a clearer focus for my own work.

This existence is made of vibrations - bits moving so quickly we can rarely see them. With that said, it makes sense why each of us connect so deeply with music. Through my work, I attempt to display this relationship - the necessity of a body in order to dissect, and make sense of the sweet, yet intangible quality of music.
