Dancer, Educator, Artist

 

"Beginning in a tense unison, Andersen’s dancers unfurl, peeling from the center through sideways leaps, axial turns and earthy slides. They continually discover balance, only to lose grip of it again, creating a dialectical whorl of intention. One particularly strong moment — organic crosses from stage left to right and back again, set against Markus Johnson’s evocative music — show off Andersen’s knack for accented rhythm, dynamic relationships and explosive shape."
