January Happenings

With two weeks left in the month, I suppose I should call this post Mid-Winter Happenings, but I wanted to keep you posted on some exciting things happening in the next few weeks.


Log on to hear me on the radio show The H2O Network this Friday, January 28th at 1pm. CLICK HERE. I'll be on air speaking with Radiah Nunez about my creative process, starting up my dance company in the past year and my blog, amongst other topics. Dancer Tara Willis who has worked closely with me in the past year will join me. She has danced in Pulled/Together at The Chen Dance Center, Home, a diptych at ChoreOBJECTography and is a soloist in my newest work Change My Mind.


I am premiering a new work Change My Mind, featuring dancer Tara Willis as a part of  NACHMO! (National Choreography Month). Please come out and see the results of this 31 day creative challenge!
