Hey everyone! It’s been a very busy and exciting time for me. I am sitting on Amtrak on my way back to the city with a three week stint at Home : ). I just finished a new work for 25 dancers at Goucher University in Maryland. I chose 25 to challenge myself…and see how I could get them all on one page artistically and technically. I haven’t titled it as of yet but it’s a pretty intense modern creation(With all the pointe work being created, it always excites me to see the barefoot!!) The dancers really stepped up to the plate and gave their hearts. The year started off with finishing a new work for Dance Theatre of Tennessee(Points of Interest), and creating a new work for Ballet Arkansas(Moultrie’s Spring). It’s taxing mentality to push out work but i love every minute of it. Freelancing is tricky, sometimes your’e so excited about work and then your’e frightened about not having anything to do. A lot of people tend to think your phone just rings off the hook 24 hours a day. There is tons of calling, emailing, rejection, and sharing of my work that keeps me in the loop. I always tell my younger choreographer peeps to stay in the hustle and keep doing great work at your highest representation of you. All you have is what you give out to the world. REJECTION is real and never going out of style, but at the same time ACCEPTANCE is just as real.
I am on my computer right now with my amazing web designer John Nguyen. We are working really hard on getting it all together. This is my first post! I hope to keep you up on the different things happening with me and around me. The good ,the bad, and the ugly!!!! much luv
