Premiering on National Coming Out Day 2019, the goal of this piece is to encourage more diverse storytelling and inclusion in the ballet world through portraying a queer female couple on screen. 

As the director and executive producer, I collaborated with singer/songwriter Daphne Willis (#2 on iTunes Singer/Songwriter Chart, whose previous collaborators include Meghan Trainor), New York City Ballet Soloist, Georgina Pazcoguin, Broadway dancer Skye Mattox (Fosse/Verdon, Carousel), and choreographer Adriana Pierce (Spielberg's West Side Story).

After crowdfunding over the summer of 2019, we shot the piece on a Red Epic on the stages at the official YouTube Space in New York City. 

We wanted to give a voice to the LGBTQ community and bring queer representation to an art form where it is rarely depicted. We hope this film paves the way for more female choreographers, progressive storylines, and diverse individuals pursing ballet and the arts.
