…and it isn’t over YET!

Wow! What a marathon of fall shows we have all been lucky to be a part of either dancing, designing, or watching!  The fall Chicago Dance Season has NOT disappointed and I am still not done! Since Sept 1st, I have travelled to South Africa and been fortunate to design 8 World Premier dances!! In that time, I have also remounted a show I designed in 2008 and have put up a show 3 times in 4 days in 2 different venues.


I haven’t done it alone;  this season I have worked with some of the best in the business! My thanks to the Harris Theater for Music and Dance Local 2 Crew, The Loeb Playhouse Crew in Purdue,  Links Hall/Constellation , and our wonderful hosts down in South Africa, The Elizabeth Sneddon Crew

The Chicago Fall Dance Marathon is not for the faint at heart, that is for sure!  Up next (next week) is Paige Cunningham Caldarella‘s Chicago Dancemakers Forum performance Off Center, AND a guest spot on River North Dance Chicago’s dance card,  and then off to New York for a week to put up Deeply Rooted’s Generations at the Mark Morris Studios. NYC, I can’t wait to be in you!  Finishing my round robins of dance a re-mount of Kristina Isabelle’s The Floating City in Columbus, Ohio.

Many Thanks To:
