What´s been happening!

It been a very fruitful year….travels to Chile in October 2018, teaching in Santiago, and choreographing/performing in Conception, as part of the BIOBIO Festival. This event was characterized by warm, passionate dancers, who embraced my choreography and after 4 days of rehearsal, owning it deliciously on stage. I performed my solo  ¨ ARriveD ¨….Mahler’s work drew us into her introspective world…her movements were, at first, static with accents of s hand, head or foot slamming against the surface. Mahlerś was movement that harkened back to an earlier era of Modern Dance,performed with great skill and attention” Jeff Slayton.
