As a dancer/choreographer, I have been involved in many productions, but Moonlight Reflections marks my first self-produced dance theater show. I am excited to embark on this journey, and combine my new work with earlier pieces from my studies at UCLA in the World Arts and Cultures department. 

My work surrounds the healing power of dance, and exploring ways to cope, restore, and even flourish through life's most challenging experiences. By addressing the various ways we are emotionally, psychologically, and physically injured through our formative years, I believe we can create a space for empowerment and healing. 

With the foundation of movement as a healing tool, my show Moonlight Reflections is a rare blend of storytelling and dance, combining autobiographical solos alongside collective community issues through group choreography. 

As we share our stories, we encourage others to share their experiences as well, and often discover that we are all telling versions of the same truth. As we face our fears and struggles, there is strength in knowing that we are not alone. Through our unique expressions, we can discover various pathways to healing and choose to become channels of Divine Light. 

While dance is an empowering, important, and enriching part of culture and self-expression, it is also one of the most underfunded of the arts. Your support would help to nurture this amazing art form and continue to keep community art alive and flourishing.

Tatiana Zamir, dancer/choreographer
