Performance photos and posters
*This gallery is by no means complete....I have a terrible track record of recording my stage life. Feel free to send me photos if I have worked for or with you and your project is not represented!
So, they shot a Deadwood Movie. I got to dance in it. For real.....
TV shows for the win!
Nixon in China. LA Phil's Adams at 70 series.....
A few stills from our Surrender to the Mystery short dance film. I choreographed (and styled and produced....) but also danced, so thought I would share a few captures.... (with Sylvie Gosse and Alicia Foo. Samantha Macher is also pictured laughing...we laughed A LOT). Heidi Marie was behind the camera.
Two self produced original projects created with friends...
This poster hung, in huge oversized glory, at the Moonspace for a while. A long while. I loved being there once I had moved to LA! It was a little weird to stare at it while rehearsing for other shows though!
My Eyes Have Their Own Light was a full length evening of classical song, dance and music. Act One was this beautiful pas de deux, the title ballet, which was choreographed by Michael Kruzich and danced by me and Charles Torres to the gorgeous voice of soprano Sylvia Eowyn Bloom. Act Two was a solo to Mirabai Songs, choreographed by Robin Kurland and once again, danced by me. Sylvia was once again the soloist. The evening was rounded out by the Kronos Quartet. It was produced by me and Sylvia as a benefit for the Women's Needs Center of the Haight Ashbury Free Clinic.
I was a member of the San Francisco company of The Phantom of the Opera for the entire run. I started as a ballet dancer and became a musical theater artist, adding singing and acting to my skill set and performing the lead role of Meg many times. It was a fantastic experience that I will treasure always.
