We had the privilege of having studio space to work in on Friday in liu of class. Thank you to these lovely for coming out on your day off to collaborate on, and learn new choreography. I’m so proud of this piece and you dancers! I’ve only heard good things about your “impromptu” performance of it on Sunday. 
I’m also excited to start filming this week! .

I can’t believe it’s actually time to show these pieces! The semester has flown by. Lots of ups. LOTS of downs. But we’re here! Come see us dance, and see our hard work pay off. 
Tonight, May 31st 2019 8pm. 
Tomorrow, June 1st 2pm & 8pm.

A couple of weeks ago, we did a short improv session. We were dead tired after a week of long rehearsals, and an extra long day of it. This is selections from two very different random songs we all did, and then set to another different tune..

A preview of my next big project. 
Last Friday we finally found some time to put some choreography together, and today I accidentally skipped a class because I was working on the music. Thank you @jeargueta and @giselleeesoliz for your willingness to stay after class and let me experiment on you two! I’m hoping to have this all ready to shoot within the next couple of weeks. ..

I’m calling this “Pop-Up Beatnik”
It was incredibly difficult to edit this video down, with so much wonderful footage of these dancers, but I’m happy with how it has turned out. .
.
Come see us perform (something a bit different) live on May 31st, and June 1st at Pasadena City College. .

3 nights of shooting, over 2 hours of footage, of 6 different dancers, with about 10 minutes of phrase-work, compressed into a tidy 18 second video. Enjoy! .

Our live show is May 31st and June 1st, at Pasadena City College, save the date. .

Thanks to everyone who came out tonight for this third filming segment for the “Beatnik” video. 
I was scrolling through, taking stills, noticing how some of the frames could tell their own stories. .

From last weeks impromptu film shoot. An improvisation in silhouette. This section probably won’t make it to the final cut, for reasons, but I liked the look of it. .

Thank you @jeargueta for staying with me all day! Through three rehearsals and then staying to film. We shot another section of choreography and improv for my next dance video. I’m excited to see all of the pieces together. 
We haven’t scheduled the next shoot yet, so If you want to be a part of this, or a future project, let me know. .
.
And if you want to see a stage version of my choreography, our show is May 31st and June 1st, here at PCC... save the date! .
