Shaking Our Ischial Tuberosities

  Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of dancing and performing with students from Mason Gross School of the Arts and working professionals in NYC to create a fun yoga-inspired dance for the NYC Om Factory’s 2017 Summer Solstice party! Working with these incredible people that I get to spend everyday digging deep into…

Prequel: Self Study

Chapter 2, Text 17 of the Bhagavad-gītā states: “One who is, however, taking pleasure in the self, who is illuminated in the self, who rejoices in and is satisfied with the self only, fully satiated – for him there is no duty”. Give or take some yogic context as well as the fact that this…

Blue No w here

It was a pleasure to perform in Fenella Kennedy’s original work, Blue No w Here, in Columbus’s 10 Tiny Dances on March 17 and 18. Through a process inspired by dancers’ improv and generation, Blue No w here became a communal work about the communal impacts of technology. I felt that rather than dancing to…

Preserved, Revered, in Whole

The act of art making is intensely and inherently vulnerable… what else is new. You take some of the deepest bits of your soul and put it in a glass box, or in our case a black box, for people to experience, question, indulge in, judge, fall in love with, or worse, walk away utterly…

Ascend Descend

Really excited to share the beginning of my journey in Dance Film 1 with Mitchell Rose. Our first assignment was to take 22 specific shots of the same movement and create two different films with two different “feels”.  Thank you Laura Patterson for cooperating and working with me on this first project. Dancer: Laura Patterson…
