heart&feet: A Dance Exhibition

Last night my dance company, Border Crossing Collective, had the pleasure of performing at heart&feet, a dance exhibition benefitting Drea's Dream and the pediatric dance therapy program at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

My longtime friend and business partner, Elena Vazintaris and I choreographed and performed the piece along with four other dancers, Kafi Pierre, Katie Avery, Michelle Lawton and Jevon Goldson.  We also brought our friend the MarXman along to help us out on the mic.  The event was a huge success; everyone had an amazing time, sipping on yummy 44 North Cocktails and dancing the night away.  Special thanks to Jenn Whitley for, once again, organizing a wonderful event and thanks to all of our friends who came out to support.  Check out the performance video and post-performance pictures below.
