Dance is an art of time and space. A philosopher has said that dance and architecture were the first two arts. Moreover, many people state that dance is the hidden language of the soul, of the body. The dancer exhibits feelings through his/her dance and the choreographer is the one who creates the dance and interprets the feelings for us. In this way, we understand these feelings and ourselves with greater insight. Starr Jeffreys, a person passionate about dancing and living her dreams to the fullest.
