I am honored to be dancing in a never before seen baroque opera from 1679 entitled “The Amazons in the Fortunate Isles,” with a new opera company called Ars Minerva. I will be working under the choreographic direction of Muriel Maffre, former principal dancer of the San Francisco Ballet. This is my operatic debut and I could not be more thrilled to work with such an esteemed and respectable cast of artists!
Performances are May 21st and 22nd at the Marines Memorial Theater in San Francisco. Type in the code SINGERS in order to receive a 30% discount on orchestra seats.
See you there!
2015 burned bright for me. It burned away old patterns and beliefs, biases, and illusions of separation. It burned away guilt and shame and fortified self love and generosity above all. All of this, the stuff of transformation, came from relationships with some of the most amazing people I have ever met. So thank you Mike Shine, Rossi Lamont Walter, Shyrine Ziadeh, Jonathan Konsh, Mate Moray, Eric Shuman, Liliana Carrizo, Marina Hotchkiss, Bob Feder, David Feder, Cindy Feder, Mark Janes, The Fulbright Program, Gay Lynch, Deborah Friedes Galili, and everyone I danced with this year, for helping me to become more of who I am.
My hope for 2016 is that we can all give ourselves a pat on the back more often and thank ourselves for everything it takes to be an imperfect human on this planet. I hope we can all learn from our mistakes and keep on creating a world we love that loves us back. Cheers to a new year of self assurance and shameless creativity! Whoop!
