In March, I had the good fortune to travel to the Twin Cities and restage my 2010 piece "Twins" on two SPCB dancers (see videos of the original and new versions on my Video page). Here's a preview!

 

In July, I'll return to the midwest to create a brand-new piece on the company, to be performed at the Minnesota Fringe Festival in early August. While I'm there, I'll get to teach choreography classes each day to the SPCB students attending their annual summer intensive. Time to expand some young minds. I'll be posting updates on the progress of the piece and the students!
