Ashli Bickford, Age 20, Founder and Artistic Director of Emerge Danceworks.
This is a quick audio piece I edited down from a longer interview for my journalism capstone course. The assignment for the audio project was inspired by StoryCorps, which is an absolutely wonderful initiative to capture America’s history through oral interviews.
I didn’t put in an introduction, but I think Ashli’s interview stands perfectly well on its own two feet. I love her views on movement and feel lucky to be able to dance with her in Emerge. You can watch the promo she made for Emerge after last semester’s showcase.
