If we’re living in an age where love is considered universal, why are we still only seeing the same, traditional portrayals of it?

As a former ballet dancer, I noticed that despite there being so much LGBTQ representation in film and television, you saw next to none in ballet storytelling. So many ballets center around romance, culminating with a grandiose pas de deux (a dance for two people) where the man spins the ballerina and lifts her over his head. 

I realized that the reason was rooted in a gatekeeper mentality that kept ballet stuck in the past, in the same way that it often excluded people of different body types and ethnic backgrounds. 

I set out to create piece with the kind of representation

I would have wanted to see as a young girl.

My team included queer choreographer Adriana Pierce

and singer/songwriter Daphne Willis, whose song serves

as the backdrop with an inspiring message of self-love.

I think having LGBTQ+ collaborators added so much authenticity to a film portraying the collective experience of so many.

New York City Ballet soloist, Georgia Pazcoguin and Broadway

dancer, Skye Mattox, starred in the piece, which we shot

on a Red Epic at The YouTube Space in New York City. 

Thank you to all of our generous Indiegogo backers, creative consultants, my dedicated producing team, forever faithful DP, visionary production designer, the amazing and talented crew, and my loved ones for encouraging me to never give up on my crazy ideas.

"I Am Enough" at Dance Against Cancer

On June 21, 2021, "I Am Enough" was adapted for the stage and performed at Lincoln Center for The American Cancer Society's Dance Against Cancer annual event (the largest live ticketed dance event in NYC since the start of the pandemic).

In July of 2021, I shot and edited a mini documentary on Cortney Taylor-Key for Adriana Pierce's #QueerTheBallet initiative (featured in the New York Times).
