Along with ballet/contemporary influence, styles such as voguing, hip hop, house and jazz are fused together to form one language. As a choreographer, his mission is to bring forth cohesive art in an effort to bring together the classical and commercial dance communities, and appreciate the art form of dance as a bridge we use to communicate and relate to each other.

ELLA ROSEWOOD/DANCEWS 

dancews (pron. danˈso͞oz) is a new movement collaboration facilitated by Ella Dawn W-S. Through sampling, paraphrasing, approximating, and always doing our best, we are creating the means and trying not to worry too much about the ends.
