Hooray, my dream has come true! I finally have started an aerial dance company...M.O.T.H Aerial Dance Theater: Movement Of The Heart. We are currently working on a project that will premiere in the spring of 2009. The main piece is about four women who swam the English Channel in the 1920's, one of whom was the first woman to do it, Gertrude Ederle. The dancers working on the project with me are, Amanda Goble, Aimee Hancock, and Bronwyn Sims. They ROCK!!!
Keep checking in, as I will be posting pictures and videos from rehearsals soon!
