In the midst of the CoVid 19 pandemic, I pray that everyone is staying safe.
Dance has been such a blessing for me and countless others and now we find ourselves in a time where we no longer have the ability to physically connect.
As a partner dancer, I had questioned my purpose and had hoped creativity would continue to come through.
2 OF US (the 2nd video) was born back in April during the height of the pandemic, when my dance partner Abdiel Jacobsen and I wanted to find a way to still dance "together" but were stuck on opposite coasts due to CoVid.
LULLABY WALTZ was made in response to us being asked to contribute a piece to Manhattan Chamber Music. It is run by Lucie Gelinas whom we met last year when we performed at Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium. Her website celebrates classical composers and we were a part of Johannes Brahms' live birthday event on May 7th.
We hope these videos will INSPIRE, BRING JOY, SPREAD LOVE and put a smile on as many faces as possible during this time.
Enjoy and please stay safe and heathy and trust that we will get through this together.
