Outdoor Rehearsal Residency at Downtown Brooklyn Plaza- West African Dance with Babacar Top

So grateful to be collaborating with the incredible Babacar Top as part of his future West African Dance Production. We have rehearsed twice so far, and the energy we are creating has already been profoundly deep, creative, and inspired with still three more to go in the coming weeks.

Getting to perform outdoors at the Plaza at 300 Ashland in Downtown Brooklyn is a very unique opportunity. Across the street from Mark Morris Dance Center and next door to BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music), we have the energy, the sounds, and the inspiration of the city all around us. People stop and watch as we work out details creating sounds and choreography of our performance, and many stop by and say hello and thank you.

The Plaza at 300 Ashland– Downtown Brooklyn- Thursdays 10/15, 10/22, 10/29 from Noon – 2:00pm

Thank you to @DowntownBrooklyn for creating this initiative to help artists rehearse and work!

Looking forward to continuing as this project blooms, stay tuned…

Thank you, 2017… Welcome NewYorkWild.Life!

What. A. Year…

I’d like to thank everyone who helped me along my path this year, those who supported and influenced me, and those whom I’ve had the privilege to work with this year.  You all inspire me and give me the strength and understanding to continue toward my goals and lessons.  I appreciate all the opportunities I’ve been blessed with this year, and look forward to continuing to cultivate my skills, feelings, abilities, and passions.

With love in my heart, I present to you a new project title and purpose.  NewYorkWild.Life is a self-assessment, a look inward to define what I can express outward, and an honest interpretation of what I’ve found within and wish to share in hopes of inspiring and entertaining.

I am grateful to be in the company of my partner, Agave L’amour.  Your constant support and inspiration keeps wind in my sails, and continues to prove the impossible is only what we allow to beat us.  You are a great teacher and beautiful human, and I thank you for everything.  Here’s to so many more impossibly beautiful moments with you.  Tqm

Now then… ready for 2018?  😉
