The Dance May 18, 2011 | prodigydance | More on General
"The Dance" is a piece created through personal experience within a relationship gone bad. So…experienced, cheating, and the desperate feeling of longing for the reason "why"? The powerful lyrics of "So i hate you and love you, we're friends" .. "A monster is born" .. "Why can't you take me in your arms" hit a vulnerable spot in me as a choreographer to create this piece through this experience in which impacted my life. How to create this piece with all female dancers brought me to several ideas...an angry mob of village women, such ideas as the Scarlet Letter, revenge, anger sadness and so much longing in one's soul bring me back to the question of "WHY"? The movement in which you will see in my eyes captures such an emptiness leading into an established longing for something you so desperately have loved, grows into complete anger through the attack of the movement using the body, the deep plies, hand gestures, the neck isolation within the movements, the costume and even the pulling of their own hair in an angry gesture to symbolize being so crazed to want to pull your hair out, is so much of this work. Ending the piece with such a simple calmness allowed me show such a closure once the developed emotions one goes through after such an experience closes out the piece. It has been quite an experience bringing such memories back to the surface to create this, however it is so nice to see the dancers take this work and connect it to things they may have experienced within their own life.Read More

Still Standing May 18, 2011 | lashanna | More on General
This choreographic work is a 6 minute excerpt of a 9 minute piece. It represents…strength of men and women. It represents people of power and authority. People who are experiencing trails of life which have been left abstract to allow the audience self reflection. It represents unity in numbers as well as the importance of being able to stand alone. There is an unveiling, a fight and a victory. No matter what happens during the course of our journey; all of us are left Still Standing.Read More
