Premiering on National Coming Out Day 2019, this dance film was a way to express the emotions I felt as a dancer growing up. I found a radical lack of female queer representation in the ballet work and made my mind up to change that.

 

I partnered with singer/songwriter Daphne Willis (#2 on iTunes Singer/Songwriter Chart), choreographer Adriana Pierce (seen next in Spielberg's West Side Story film), dancers Georgina Pazcoguin (New York City Ballet Soloist) and Skye Mattox (of Fosse/Verdon and Broadway's Carousel).

We crowdfunded over the summer and shot the video at The YouTube Space NY in August. 

I hope this video inspires viewers to be themselves and let love in. I also hope, as a lover of ballet, that this helps pave the way for more female choreographers and progressive storylines.
