A Message from Demi - What’s Beyond The Horizon

The horizon teaches us that there is always something more. There is depth to explore and the unknown to ponder. You can't quite see it, but you know something's there. That's how I understand human potential and growth, especially as it relates to performing arts - there's always something more to discover whether it's in yourself, in your team, or in the culture as a whole. Once you allow yourself to embrace that unknown, you'll find yourself flourishing beyond what you thought was possible. And it all starts by looking beyond the horizon.
