Simon Phillips is inspired by the nature of sensation and physiological responses of the human body.
Originally from Macon, Georgia, he began dance training primarily for recreation. Simon attended Kennesaw State University where he graduated with Bachelor degrees in Psychology and Dance.
His career brought him to Pittsburgh in 2017, where he has since worked as a dancer and teaching artist for the local community.
"There are infinite possibilities and purposes in dance. I am empowered by the sense of personal control over these factors.
Dance allows me to experience ideas holistically with body and mind. It connects me to the natural elements of this world and physical properties of my own present body.
Dancing can be as grounding as it is transcendental. Life functions as a dance, even in ways we can't perceive.
I love sharing dances, creating new dances with friends, and exploring the dances that thrive around us every day." -Simon
