super excited to share my new choreography reel!
COLLABORATION IS KEY!
Choreographing The Wheel for Hysterica was a kinetic adventure! Collaborating with artist/designer Lara Schnitger truly expanded my way of thinking about structure, movement and design.
Friend and collaborator Diana Koenigsberg captured the creativity in a one of a kind photo shoot featuring choreography, design and performance with dancers Reshma Gajjar, Andy Acosta, Hunter Hamilton, Marlon Pelayo, Justine Clark and Tara Brook.
COLLABORATION IS KEY!
So excited to have collaborated with Spanish director Ramon Ayala, who's work is known for its "strong sense of beauty, emotion and raw nature" on BELLY'S Official "Ballerina" video.
I appreciated Ramon's natural and poetic sense of storytelling, the aesthetics are high!
Belly was super generous and kind to us dance folk and star Natalia Barulich is indeed a true ballerina and a great beauty. Our other beautiful ballerinas were Stephanie Kim, Katherine Cowgill, Morgan Quinn, and Jessica Gadzinksi.

entelechy def: the realization of potential
"Musician, filmmaker, and activist Ariana Delawari has announced the forthcoming release of her double album Entelechy I & II due out August 12"
Entelechy I was produced by Butchy Fuego and Entelechy II is the same collection of tracks presented as acoustic and unproduced featuring Salar Nader - a fellow Afghan-American and a famed virtuoso of the tabla.
i'm excited to announce that the short film i choreographed which accompanies Entelechy, will premiere in the next few months! it's already hit the festival circuit, screening all over the world, the responses have been very positive and heartfelt. the debut of the film will coincide with the release of Ariana Delawari's double album. Thank you to the amazing Nicole Disson for bringing me on board.
you can listen to the first single from the album here or take a peek at the film's trailer!
ok...so it's pretty great to have one of your projects highlighted in Rollingstone! loved bringing the title track of Josh Kelley's highly anticipated new album "New Lane Road" to life in dance with the stunning Kelsey Landers and Derek Tabada.
See Josh Kelley, Katherine Heigl in Dramatic 'It's Your Move' Video
"The artful, dramatic video, which has the couple acting out the roller coaster of emotions that so often accompany a relationship, also features two professional dancers helping tell the true story of a fight Kelley and Heigl had early in their marriage". Rollingstone
Amoureux "Lost the Plot"
kitty's choreography beautifully compliments the hazy, indie pop sound of Holiday J and Nicole Turley's musical duo, Amoureux. Entertainment Weekly calls the video for their latest release, "gorgeously choreographed". check it out!
