Choreographer & Director
Wow, what a packed 2019 it's been! I've continued my work at the Youth Academy of Dramatic Arts here in Los Angeles, and since fall of 2018, I have co-choreographed and co-directed The Little Mermaid, Mamma Mia and am currently finishing up Aladdin Jr.! I will also be working with them a little bit this summer, directing Once On This Island and Legally Blonde Jr. That's not all the TYA work I've done this year--this spring, I've also choreographed Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and A Year with Frog and Toad both at the Oaks Christian Academy in Thousand Oaks, California. Performances will in early May and I couldn't be more proud to now be a part of the Oaks Christian family. I've so enjoyed my time with those children and with that amazing artistic team!
Big news for the summer! I will be choreographing Catch Me If You Can at the Big Fork Summer Playhouse in mid June and then immediately flying to Michigan, to choreograph and assistant direct Marvelous Wonderettes for Top Hat Productions. Hooray for work in what you love and with people you love working with! I can't wait to take on both of these shows.
Other 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!) last 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 perhaps this summer, or even to apply to be apart of the program again this coming year. I also have been going to classes and attending seminars through the program and am thrilled to see what SDCF continues to offer--to my artistic vision and my career!
Alright 2019, I see you.
