Grand Opening of the Fredgren Studio Theater

September 21, 2014, a beautiful sunday afternoon.  It was a very special and important day… BalletNova Center for Dance in Falls Church, where Gin Dance Company has been calling home since our inception, was having a Grand Opening of the Fredgren Studio Theater.  We were so honored and thrilled to be performing at such a special event.  After several years of fundraising and building out the space, the theater is finally open!!  This theater (Fredgren Studio Theater) was dedicated to the founders of BalletNova Center for Dance (formerly Arlington Center for Dance), Mr. and Mrs. Fredgren(Ken & Kathy) who first hired me as a faculty member and brought me into this wonderful family 12 years ago.  The solid foundation that Ken and Kathy laid is what the BalletNova we all know today is built upon as it continues to grow and blossom.  I’m truly grateful for all they have done along with the entire staff at BalletNova and it’s supporters to make this happen.  The Fredgren Studio Theater will provide a space for the artists and dance companies like us to have a place to present our works as we continue to grow.  We are looking forward to sharing our work and creating memories with this wonderful community at the Fredgren Studio Theater.  Here is an interview: http://dcmetrotheaterarts.com/2014/09/23/moment-interview-fredgren-studio-theater/

LADV (Life After Domestic Violence)’s Gala and Fashion Show, “Phoenix Rising”

What a beautiful event at the LADV (Life After Domestic Violence)’s Gala and Fashion Show, “Phoenix Rising” this past Friday, April 25!  The event was held at TriVision Studio.  The event setting was modern, trendy, and elegant.  The Gala performance started at 7:40 pm with a welcome note from the emcee and then opened the show with my solo work ‘Unchain’.  The program also included belly dancing by Um-Neeya Dance Company and hip hop by ONE UNIT.  The energy was running high.  The show closed with GDC’s ‘The Core’.   After the performance, the fashion show started with Apoorva McIntosh’s latex collection – Phoenix Rising.  Apoorva is a talented, accomplished and award winning Fashion Designer who is also the Founder of the LADV Foundation.  Her designs were fun and chic.  At the end, Apoorva shared her very personal experiences in sexual and domestic abuse and how she decided to form the organization so she can reach out to many and help create awareness of the domestic abuse epidemic in society and help survivors of domestic abuse.  We are truly grateful for Apoorva McIntosh for having us. It was a privilege to be a part of it.  Also, great thanks to Abla Doku with Eventstagers for organizing such a great party and TriVision Studio for the beautiful space.  With Abla Doku The Core The Core The Core Unchain Unchain UnchainWith Apoorva McIntosh

A Year Ago Today…

March 27, 2013, a year ago today, a beautiful sunny day just like today… We presented Gin Dance Company’s ‘Deep eMotion’ production at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and we also celebrated our beautiful dancer Lindsay Benson Garrett’s birthday.  It was a true double happiness.  What a very special day for all of us at GDC.  Today as we celebrate Lindsay’s birthday, we remember the fond memories we all shared one year ago today.
