Last night was opening night and boy did we open with a bang. I choreographed this compelling play, written by Paula Vogel and directed by Nancy Keystone, at the Denver Center for Performing Arts. It was a huge undertaking and a great challenge but I’m happy to feel a sense of completion after delving into traditional Yiddish movement and music. Check us out if you’re in the Denver Metro area.
Thank you to the Colorado Theatre Guild for the top honors. Yours truly won the Henry Award for Outstanding Choreography for my work in “Oklahoma!” at DCPA. My heart is bursting with great memories and love. Thank you!
The Colorado Theatre Guild’s Henry Awards honor outstanding achievements during the past musical theater season in Denver, Colorado. I’ve been nominated for the Best Choreography award for my work on DCPA’s Oklahoma!. Wish me luck and send good vibes on July 22nd when they announce the winners.
We can all agree P!nk is a force of nature. Her aerial work paired with incredible vocals are unmatched. It’s with great admiration and honor that I got to choreograph a number for her ongoing world tour titled “Beautiful Trauma”. I choreographed, with much guidance and support, “Hustle” along with Nick and RJ, her supervising choreographers and creative directors. Hoping for more opportunities to work with her, them and all the amazing dancers that made my work come to life!
If you happen to catch her tour, DO IT!!
The cat is out of the bag!
I am a contributing choreographer on Janet Jackson’s new Vegas residency premiering at the Park MGM Theater in Las Vegas, NV. I had the honor to choreograph two numbers and to see it come to fruition and reality made my heart soar. If you have a chance, run to see the show because it’s playing for only 18 shows. I’m still on a cloud 9. This a moment I will never forget!
Thanks to American Theater Magazine for listing me as one of “6 Theater Workers You Should Know”. I was featured in the May edition of the article.

Let me start off by saying, I LOVE FKA TWIGS!!!
I had the honor of choreographing two numbers for her tour and she will not disappoint. Starting May 7th in Los Angeles, this world tour will be her foray back onto the scene after some years of healing and regrouping. Go check it out in a city or country near you!
Run, don’t walk, and check out Cirque Du Soleil’s, “VOLTA” opening April 3rd at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Ron Kellum, artistic director, brought me in to consult and rechoreograph some dance elements for the show centered around “Waz”, the show’s dance lead. Jakob Karr, who plays “Waz” in the show, is a force to be reckoned with. He’s an athletic powerhouse who has beauty and grace. Go get your tickets and be astounded!!
John Legend’s new single, “Preach”, made its triumphant debut on the iHeart Radio Awards and thank God I was able to add some choreography and staging to this wonderful work of art. Jemel McWilliams brought me in for inception and camera blocking. It was hard to just be a spectator listening to words of the song and call to action. 18 of the finest recording artists and back up vocalists comprised the John Legend choir and rocked the house. Check it out for yourself.
Today was an amazing experience getting to warm up and set some lindy choreography on the Gwen Stefani dancers for their live show in Las Vegas. Head choreographer, Luther Brown, afforded me the opportunity to revamp some choreography and there was soo much joy and focus in the room. Many thanks to the cast and Luther’s choreography team for allowing me to laugh with, motivate, and teach some classic lindy vibes.
Check out the residency at the Zappos Theater in Las Vegas before it concludes on Novemeber 2, 2019!
