Descrizione

A dance is a communication between the dancer and the universe or God. As we each embrace the dancer in us, we can better understand and celebrate Chidi Okoyes work in its fullness. His unmatched sensitivity to the subtle energies of the female body and the dancing body is apparent through all his work, and my hope is that we can all truly appreciate the gift that he is to this world
