“As a classically trained student of modern dance, the music of Johann Sebastian Bach has been a pillar of my education. I have performed many works to Bach, each one of them unique and challenging. It can be somewhat of a competition to match the energy, intensity, and emotion of the music; it is the engine that drives the dance forward, and a buoy for me to cling to in performance. What I love most about dancing to Bach is the feeling that I am the the music, visualized.” – Sarah Elizabeth Stanley
