What’s your favorite food? Mac and cheese since day 1
A movie you could watch 100 times? The Incredibles 🦸‍♂️🦸‍♀️
Something you can’t live without? My planner and my electric blanket!
Favorite season? Each one is my favorite at the time. 🌞🍂❄️🌷
Dogs or cats? I think you can guess based on my photos....
What scripture do you refer to the most? Psalm 66
Is there a favorite piece you’ve ever performed? Of course, each one is my favorite at the time! If I HAD to pick just one, I’d say “Sunlight Flight,” a trio I choreographed and performed with my college best friends (one of whom also dances with Asaph)!
What’s your favorite part of dancing with Asaph? I love the dancers’ camaraderie and shared sense of a greater purpose. I also love that we’re encouraged to bring our unique gifts, personalities, and movement styles to the Ensemble instead of fitting a strict mold. Every day I share with my fellow company members, I’m inspired by their technique, artistry, and continual striving to glorify God through their movement.

Do you have adult classes?
It's a pleasure to express my gratitude to the Asaph Dance Ensemble for a marvelous performance this afternoon. Every piece was a delightful experience. Robin Sturm's "Through the Storm" provided a great menu of powerful music, beautiful costumes and impeccable choreography that portrayed a moving portrait of faith and courage in the storms of life. Bob Sturm's "David and Goliath-Deconstructed builds on his already impressive collection of works that communicate Biblical stories with both humor and heart. Carl and Randi Bly's Apple Valley Flute Choir provided their usual offering of lovely music that so beautifully highlights these performances. Loved seeing some of our young people from Clear River participating in the effort as well. An outstanding experience from beginning to end!
Auditions for the professional ballet company, Asaph Dance Ensemble, & trainees!
