Choreographer & Director
Happy holidays everyone!
Wow, what a packed fall it's been! After returning from a summer of traveling for some regional work in choreography (My Way in North Carolina, Nunsense A-men in Michigan, 80s Radicial Revue in Montana) not to mention, two summer camps with the Youth Academy of Dramatic Arts here in Los Angeles, I set my standards high for the end of the year. I have been working hard on the co-choreography and co-direction of the Little Mermaid at YADA! But more than that, I've been taking advantage of my SDCF Observership Program. If you have forgotten, after an intensive application process, I was selected this fall to be a part of the 2018-2019 Observership Program. I've been learning more about the art of choreographing as well as direction and though I was very close to an observership (one of the top 4!) this fall, I didn't get it. I say this not for you to pity me but to know that it has made me even stronger and I'm excited with the hopes to get one in the new year (New Years resolution, anyone?)! This fall, I also have been going to classes and attending seminars through the program and am thrilled to see what SDCF offers in the coming year.
Exciting news alert! Now that it's official, I can tell you that I will be choreographing Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the Oaks Christian School in Thousand Oaks, California this winter! I can't wait to get to know another group of talented kids and to have fun with this show. As well as that, I will be co-choreographing/co-directing Mamma Mia at the Youth Academy of Dramatic Arts. I also have every intention to attend UPTAs again this year as a choreographer/director in February and already talking about what my summer will be.
Soooo...just a few things in 2019....! ;-)
As I finish this post amidst the twinkle of Christmas lights and a needed break to celebrate the holidays with friends and family on the horizon, I would like to extend a thank you to you all. It's been a really good year and it's lite a fire within me that went on hibernation for about a year after initially moving to the west coast. I'm so thankful for all the opportunities I have had, the people that have surrounded me for each one, and those who support me in each and every endeavor. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
