One of the gifts of my career is creating dance for live orchestral performances!
This summer i've been collaborating with Mike Simpson (EZ Mike) and Muse/ique to create a theatrical dance event for the upcoming JAZZ/GENESIS show. The music, the story, the magic of Mike Simpson's re-invention have completely revitalized me!
Come see Maestra Rachel Worby, the Muse/ique Orchestra, principal dancers Chelsea Paige Johnson and Marlon Pelayo and the graduating class of Edge Performing Arts Center's nationally recognized scholarship program LIVE on Saturday, August 8 @ 7:30
