Corinne has described her life,
My goal is to take everything in life, the many spectrums of existence, its ugliness and its beauty, its suffering and its joy, and transform these to create healing and beauty. Life will do everything to destroy your soul, art will remind you that you have one.She welcomes mail at nextmovementdance at gmail dot com. We are happy that Corinne takes the time to write.
