It is hard to pick just one favourite moment in my career, but I wanted to share with you one of the moments in the past year that ranks as one of the top 3 for me. This year that Kinetic Elements performed at FAT: Fashion Alternative week in Toronto. The atmosphere was incredible. The crowd was packed, the music was blaring – you could feel the vibration in your bones and I got to walk down the runway! It was an amazing experience!

Thank you to FAT for having us and a huge thank you to all the dancers that brought their wonderful talent to this event.

“…even I can appreciate Kinetic Elements’ skill and artistry – including Kendra Hughes’ choreography, which contrasts jerk, robotic gestures with graceful, sweeping motions.”

Gillian

Gillian Moult had been dancing for 18 years, through elementary school, high school and now trains at York University. Though her involvement was mostly recreational as a child, through her teens she began training professionally to be accepted into York’s Dance program to achieve a Bachelor of Fine Arts in contemporary dance. Her rigorous training at school is going to afford her the privilege of performing at International Dance Day, F.A.T. Toronto Alternative Fashion, and the Toronto Fringe Festival this summer. Recently, she has had the honour of dancing with Kinetic Elements, and is looking forward to continuing this summer.

Q&A

Who is your biggest inspiration?

My biggest inspiration are my friends and family. I am so lucky to have people around me that support what I’m doing. It’s not every day that you get such a large support group. Their  encouragement inspires me and give me the confidence to keep doing what I love to do.

How did you get into dance?

I started dancing because my parents put in me in class. I was not the one begging to go into a studio at first. In fact I was extremely shy when I was young, but putting me into those classes was probably the best thing my parents could have done for me. Once I got on the stage I knew there was no other place for me.

Why do you keep dancing?

I keep on dancing partly for the excitement, partly for the opportunity to learn, but mostly for the opportunity to share. There is nothing I want more but to inspire others with my own art form. I think you can form such amazing connections in dance and I would not want to give that up.

What are your future aspirations?

I want to perform and teach all at the same time. I want to travel and see everything I can. At this point I can’t settle on doing one thing because I see so many options. I think I still have sometimes to figure out what I really want to do.

Check Gillian out this summer at the 2011 Toronto Fringe Festival!
