Welcome to my sixth newsletter. This October is filled with adventure, and this week is no exception. There are behind the scenes events, festivals, performances, and collaborations on the horizon. Happy October!
Come to Gibney studios tomorrow Wednesday October 17th for a Behind the Scenes look at Spark Movement Collective's production of "1984". I will be dancing along side my Spark company members, and the choreographers and composer will be there to talk about process and give you an inside peek. Please RSVP for the Behind the Scenes event here. I am very excited to be dancing the role of Julia in this incredible story. If you haven't read 1984, I highly recommend it! Save the date for the Performances on November 8th, 9th, and 10th at the The Secret Theater. Purchase your tickets here!

I am very excited to be traveling to Austin, TX this Thursday to perform in The Theorist Festival. Austin was my home for 14 years while I danced with Ballet Austin, so this is going to be a real treat to be back! Louisa Pancoast and I will be performing "The Dream", and for the first time we will be performing with Dana Falconberry. Her music is the driving force of this piece, and I can't wait to join together. Reserve your festival seat here. Also, please consider making a donation. Your donation keeps the festival free for all to see.
I have deepened my collaboration with Dana Falconberry, and I am so thrilled to bring the expanded version of "The Dream" to Brooklyn at The Shape Shifter Lab on November 2nd. I am so grateful that The Dance Collective has brought me onto this evening bill alongside 7 talented female choreographers. Please get your tickets!
My show on September 29th at Factory ArtSpace was an enormous success. The dancers, the musicians, and the audience were all fantastic. Thank you to everyone who helped make that evening happen. We were lucky enough to have wine donated to us by No Limit Wines too! I have a whole new evening in store for you, and I hope you will save the date for Friday November 16th 8pm. There will be an amazing evening of dance for you, including a new piece I am cooking up this month. The piece is called "20 Women", and guess what?? There are 20 women in the piece! Each woman will dance to her own voice in a series of solos. We just completed recording the 20th woman this past Saturday with Kevin of Blackler Mastering. Ticket link coming out soon!
Thank you for reading. I hope to see you at a show, in a class, or some where in between. I will leave you with a fun collaboration I have with a talented musician named Ego. We have been performing together in and around subways when we can. It is super enjoyable and helps quench my thirst for performing. I hope you enjoy The Theme from the Godfather.
