This is the first short dance film of many to come. I've long dreamed about making little dance films, combining my love for movement and intertwining stories with art. Self-expression is an important part of my life, and dance has always been my favourite way to do just that.

The concept for 'Dawn' is inspired by my life. It's been a fairly intense time and this week alone has been... eventful to say the least. Rather than dwelling, I channelled my emotions into crafting this piece, using ballet, lyrical and contemporary inspired choreography to bring the story to life. Simply put, 'Dawn' tells the loose tale of a girl who finds joy within herself. Life isn't what happens to you, it's what you choose to do that matters.

- the darkest hour is just before dawn
