"Arranca En Fa" Salsa for Dancing Stars of Atlanta
I had the honor of being one of the professional dancers for the 2017 Dancing Stars of Atlanta, benefitting Alzheimer's Association. With my partner, Nick Hagelin ("The Voice" top 10 finalist season 10), I choreographed and performed a spicy salsa routine! Performed at the Cobb Galleria in 2017.
I choreographed this contemporary dance routine for Ajna- a Collaborative Art Show of Atlanta artists. As co-director and producer of this show, it was very important for me to bring something refreshing and familiar to the production; which raised money to benefit Wellspring Living, a orgnaization that works to help victims of sex-trafficking and violence. Performed at Blue Mark Studios in 2018.
"Bees and Birds"
This piece was choreographed and performed for Dance Canvas Atlanta in 2016. I made this piece to be about the simple struggles in a common relationship, and the joys that can come from them. I both choreographed and performed in this work, which debuted at the Rialto Center for the Arts in Atlanta.
"Sofrito" Cha Cha Solo
Created at the end of 2017 and performed in 2018, "Sofrito" is an elegant and sexy contemporary cha cha solo that I danced many times and had a blast. With cha cha being one of my favorite dances, I loved performing this multiple times at multiple places, including Atlanta Salsa Bachata Festival 2018, Atlanta Salsa Congress 2017, Sanctuary ATL, Mambo Mayhem Social, and Dancer's Paradise Social.
"Mambo Cool" Solo
One of the first mambo solos I made, "Mambo Cool" is a fast and flirtatious solo that I choreographed in combination with my jazz and contemporary influences in style. I debuted this solo internationally at the Tel Aviv Salsa congress in 2017, at the Tampa Salsa Bachata Festival in 2016, and continued to perfom it all over Atlanta in places like Tumbao Dance Social at Academy Ballroom, Pasofino Dance Social, and Sanctuary ATL.
A in-depth solo that I made for myself as I was graduating college and going into the professional world, "Like Butter" explores the joys and frustrations about existence, taking what we can while we are on this Earth. This solo was originally choreographed on a former professor of dance at Indiana University, Benjamin Wegman.I wanted to perform it myself, too, and did so at many different times and places, including a Choreographers' Showcase in Tel Aviv in 2014, Israel, and at my own co-directed and co-produced show, "Heartspace" in 2016.
