Check out Moises Parra’s Artwork

Today we’d like to introduce you to Moises Parra.

Moises, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
When I was 18 months, I was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome. I always spent my early years in and out of the hospital for treatment. At the age of four, I discovered dance. Ever since then I have been able to keep my illness in remission. Dance saved my life.

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I am a dancer and choreographer. To me and to most people dance is a way to express ourselves, to feel free. As a dancer aspect, you want people to feel what you feel simply by just the movement in your body. You can express many different things with just movement which is what makes this art so beautiful. When I dance, I don’t care who is watching because it is my gateway, my passion, my love. When I choreograph, I see pictures in my head that I somehow manage to create with other dancers. Whether they have a story or not doesn’t matter to me because sometimes it feels nice to create beautiful phrases of dance. My message every time to everyone with my dancing is that dance inspires, dance speaks, and dance heals.

What do you know now that you wished you had learned earlier?
The main advice I would give to other artists is to believe in yourself and trust yourself. This is a big one because our industry does get very hard and we start to think we are not good enough. However, everyone’s journey is different, and you just have to keep practicing keep pushing and keep praying. Hard work will never go unnoticed. Lessons I wish I would’ve learned earlier is that time takes time. Nothing is going to happen overnight.

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
I mainly work in the commercial world for my dancing, so you can see me on So You Think You Can Dance, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, AMAs, iHeart Radio, Just Dance Disney, ABC Family Bunheads, to name a few. I also do post some of my choreography on my social media pages.
