July 2019 Newsletter
Happy July newsletter!! There are lots of fun performances and classes on the horizon. I am teaching open ballet class at the Ailey Extension every Monday in July at 10:30am. I am also teaching for NYC $5 Community Ballet on Thursday July 18th at 10:30am at Battery Dance. This awesome group offers $5 ballet classes and they just received a write up in Dance Informa. Lastly, I will be teaching free Yoga at Sunset Park on July 31st at 6pm with NYC Yoga Project.
I am excited to revisit my piece 20 Women for the Six Degrees Dance performance at The Mark O'Donnell Theater at the Actors Fund Arts Center in Brooklyn. This iteration will feature 6 women, and I am looking forward to reconnecting with this work and the dancers. The piece layers recorded text and movement in an intimate and deeply human way. I am excited to share a little slice of this amongst a really talented group of choreographers who are all separated by one degree of connection. Tickets are available for July 27th and 28th.
I am performing TONIGHT in Brooklyn alongside Isaac Martin Lerner with music by Ryan Wolfe. The Theorist are hosting a site specific performance party with dance, live music, nibbles, and drinks. Details available for July 13th
My piece "Color Green" is coming back to New York at the Held Space Festival at 114 5th Avenue New York on Wednesday July 24th!!! I am thrilled to be working with Juliet Mazzola and Quaba Ernest again and to have live music by Damien Simon. This will be our fourth opportunity to present this work in New York! Tickets, available here, are free with a donation at the door. All proceeds will go towards a dance-based charity. Doors will open at 6pm with a special live music performance from Damien Simon and the show begins at 6:30pm.
Thank you so much for reading and subscribing. I appreciate your support. Last month as I was about to begin class, I asked a former student how she knew that I was teaching and she said, "I read it in your newsletter". And at that moment I was so pumped! This mode of communication works and helps me reach you! Stay tuned for next month where I have an outdoor performance in Westport, Connecticut on August 1st, and preparations for New York Fashion Week Collaborations.
