As an independent choreographer with a dynamic company, it is a challenging and expensive venture to create work and perform in New York City, and even more difficult to do so abroad, with travel expenses.

We invite you to participate in this goal and to share in the satisfaction of realizing a significant and meaningful process of exploration and discovery.
