Serene, stark and unforgiving are the cold winds that bring on the winter season. The…descriptors could be used for dancing en pointe. However, there is beauty and grace in this landscape created. It's this juxtaposition of cool purity and striking dominance that is conveyed in "Cold Winds Are Rising". As the piece builds in the second movement, we find we are far from the barren stillness that first set the stage.Read More

"Express Your Burlesque" May 6, 2014 | Bennybob1000 | More on General
I was born with a degenerative congenital bone cancer called Severe Multiple Enchondromatosis. I've had…of surgeries throughout my life that have left me with a great amount of scars on my legs. Being a dancer and always having your body on display makes it really hard to feel confident in the body you have...whether it be size or scars. I choreographed this dance because the feeling of confidence is like no other and this dance evokes confidence, strength, and power. It's the perfect combination of hip-hop and jazz, sex appeal and class, passion and energy. It's about expressing yourself. Using the art of the tease to show how comfortable you are in your own skin...and that you're not afraid to show some ;) It's "Burlesque" :)Read More
