Welcome to my seventh newsletter. I will be performing tonight and much much more!

Come see me and Louisa Pancoast perform at Shape Shifter Lab tonight at 7pm in Brooklyn. The Dance Collective has selected my work, "The Dream", to be featured this evening amongst 7 other female choreographers. I am so honored to share this evening with them. Find tickets for tonight here!

You do not want to miss this show! I will be performing with Spark Movement Collective in their production of "1984" based on the George Orwell novel. This has been a fascinating and exciting process, and I am looking forward to bringing the role of Julia to life on stage. I am so grateful for this incredible group of people, and I hope you will consider attending one of these evenings with us. The performances are November 8th, 9th, and 10th at The Secret Theatre in Long Island City. Purchase your tickets here! Can't come to the show, but would like to help?? Donate here!

Join me on November 16th at 8pm at Factory ArtSpace as I present my second evening of the Movement of Intimacy Series. This evening will feature choreography by me and my long time friend Beth Terwilleger Hester. I will be restaging and presenting two duets, and premiering a piece called "20 Women". This piece will link 20 females in a series of solos where each woman will perform to her own pre-recorded voice. The words inform the tone of each piece, and each text takes the dancer to a personal space. The texts range from inspiring, vulnerable, empowering, blunt, introspective, conversational, sensual, and deeply intimate. I am excited to present Beth's work on the evening as well. Beth will be traveling from Seattle and presenting a solo creation, which is part of the evolution of a larger piece. Beth has recently launched The Gray Dance, and I am excited to support the growth of her company. We have curated work together in Austin, and it is an exciting thing to be nurturing this creative partnership again after many years.

Doors will open at 7:30pm and show will start at 8pm. $15 at the door (Venmo, Cash, or Check). $10 with a valid student ID. $12 purchased from Brown Paper Tickets here.

Factory ArtSpace is located at 16-30 Stephen St. Ridgewood, NY. It's a 2 minute walk from the Halsey Stop on the L line. The L train is running that Friday evening. The L train service changes at 10:45pm.

Louisa and I are also performing "The Dream" at Arts On Site on November 17th. I hope to see you there! This piece features music by Dana Falconberry and it has been an honor to work and collaborate with her.

Come take ballet class with me too! I have been subbing at Ailey and Ballet Arts. I will be teaching ballet next Wednesday November 7th and next Friday November 9th at 10am at Ailey. I also teach with NYC Community Ballet and I will be teaching on November 21st (the day before Thanksgiving) at 11:30am at Battery Dance. Please check them out, because they bring in really awesome teachers and you can't beat a $5 ballet class!
