I’m a Jersey boy, loud and proud.  It wasn’t until I moved to London at 19 to study dance did i begin to question or understand my heritage.  I would tell people,”oh ya know, I’m 1/4 French, 1/4 Italian, a little German etc.. and my English friends would say, “Are you baking a cake? A […]

Ok, I don’t how most of you may feel about contact improv, I know how I feel about it…. eew, don’t touch me, Hello?  Swine flu!!  But, I have to say, when guided by a charming, intelligent, and beautiful dancer such as Jill Johnson of the Forsythe Company, it is a completely different experience.

Wednesday night I show up to BAM for Forsythe.  As a dancer who has seen many works by William Forsythe, there is a particular aesthetic you become to expect of him.  Well, his evening length piece, choreographed in 2003 entitled Decreation, does not subscribe to that particular idea of freakishly perfect trinas in funky tutus […]

It was a rainy night in Manhattan, you know what that means?  I have a modern dance show to review, and, after the first 1/2, boy I was bitter about it.  There is nothing I hate more than bad modern dance.  Hint:  No one wants to see lunges and un-pointed feet unless there is a […]
