Blast from the Past


I’m getting ready to pull together a summer performance workshop for teens (cross fingers) and I needed to get this video together for a proposal.  This  is a piece I worked on with a group of students I called, “The Elixir of Youth Dance Company” back in 2009.  They performed this at a show I produced called “Eyes of Eve” at Julia Morgan Theatre, September 12, 2009. 

Some of these kids I still work with.  And they are so big now:( It gave me such a funny nostalgic feeling when I looked at this video. I know it doesn’t count as part of the 365 challenge, but I just wanted to share.  I think these kids are awesome.
