Apocalypse 15 year Anniversary

In 2008 I joined an all-male hip hop dance group called Apocalypse. At the time, I had no idea what kind of legacy I was joining. To sum up the story of Apocalypse, now in its 15th year, I found a post from one of the founding members on facebook, Dwayne Shaw Stennett. It reads … Continued

Returning to Solo Work

This last spring I had the opportunity to choreograph a series of solos on a group of really talented BFA students. While I was in the studio working, I decided to set one for myself. The link below was the result. I felt (and still do feel) like I have a lot to prove in … Continued

Fighting the Auto-Pilot

You sit at your desk, staring blankly at the wall. A voice echoes in the distance but you don’t really listen to it. The voice repeats, sometimes three times before you realize it’s a friend trying to get your attention. “Are you okay?” they ask. Of course you are; you just blanked out for a … Continued
