Why flow? When Sandy is moving on stage, everything flows. She says, “When I’m dancing and performing, it’s like I don’t even have to think about it. Everything is so easy; everything else falls away and what remains is the beat and the music.”
Sandy was born and raised in Thunder Bay and grew up with supportive parents who encouraged her to be creative and to try at least everything once. Figure skating was her passion for almost fourteen years before she moved onto a new passion: musical theatre! She began singing and dancing and doing theatre all while still putting in many practice hours at the rink. The busy schedule became overwhelming and it was clear she had gone as far as she could with skating. She had risen through the ranks and the next step within her reach was coaching other children. Sandy wasn’t interested in a career as a coach so she took a step back from skating and focused on art in other forms. She continued dancing and doing theatre, and began teaching herself to paint and draw and work with clay and other mediums.
It’s as if every part of Sandy’s existence circles around the desire to create art. Whether she’s painting or making clay sculptures or putting costumes together or learning a new dance move, it’s all about being creative. Hoshizaki moves ethereally through the world, bringing beauty and magic to whatever she touches.
This coming weekend (Friday the 14th and Saturday the 15th), Sandy will be performing at the Sub Zero festival, supporting the DJs and musicians as a go-go dancer. Visit the ATMOS page for more information!
Sandy loves dancing and this is going to be a fun event if you’re into the rave scene, dubstep, and dancing!
I can’t wait to see what other amazing things Sandy does in future.
