Why do you dance?

KH: "I dance because it is the 
most free, most specific, most varied, and most challenging thing I think I have ever done. I can say the things I didn't know I was even feeling. I can be clear and jumbled. There is so much texture and visceral clarity that can flow through a body. I really feel like dance has endless untapped vistas, and I want to go exploring. Dance is body, it is art, and it is music (with or without sound)."
