BCC at SummerStage: Saturday August 20th. Come Check Us Out!

We're performing again and this's a big one!  My dance company, Border Crossing Collective, is honored to be a part of City Parks Foundation's Annual SummerStage Festival.  We are performing on Saturday August 20th at the East River Amphitheater* (map).  There will be a FREE dance class at 7pm and showtime is 8pm.  Seating is on a first come first serve basis

We will be presenting our first full-length evening work, "¡Holy New York!," a collection of choreographic perspectives exploring the effects of a city relentless in energy and pace. The dancers weave through experiences, as the emotional manifestations of survival, love, addiction and a search for oneself is at times all consuming but always redemptive.

I'd like to give a HUGE thank you to our dancers, Laura Colon, Mone't Freeman, Sherille Grant, Michelle Lawton, Kafi Pierre, Emma Powers and Jennifer Whitley for all of their hard work and dedication.  This would not have been possible without them.  I'd also like to thank producer extraordinaire, Phantom Lover, for the use of some of his music and IsKwé for the use of her beautiful poetry.

Come on down and enjoy a night of dance under the stars.  It is a show not to be missed.



*Amphitheater Address in East River Park Enter at Delancey Street bridge over the FDR Drive and walk south or via Cherry St/Jackson Ave entrance into Corlears Hook Park and over the FDR Drive bridge leading directly to the amphitheater.



Border Crossing Collective Performance @ LIU Dance Faculty Concert

On Friday October 15th, I presented my first piece with my dance company, Border Crossing Collective, at the Long Island University (Brooklyn Campus) Dance Faculty Concert.  It is a yet to be titled work-in-progress that will eventually be a part of a much larger piece; it's kind of like my baby right now, so I'm excited (and a little nervous) to share this with you.  The music was composed by Fortune, with lyrics and performance provided by, the MarXman.  Huge thank you to my dancers: Michelle Lawton, Mone't Freeman, Meghan Meisters and my partner-in-crime, Elena Vazintaris, for all of their support and hard work.  I literally could not have done this without them.  Thank you for watching and feel free to let me know what you think in the comment section.
