A Little Night Music at 6th Street Playhouse


Dear friends,

I'm thrilled to be working on A Little Night Music at 6th Street Playhouse in Santa Rosa, California at the moment. We have a truly wonderful cast and crew for this one, led by the incredible duo of Craig Miller and Ginger Beavers. Everything about this production is stunning, from costumes to set to the sheer talent on stage.

We open in two weeks - I hope to see you there!

Tickets are now available here.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from expandance!

We had a wonderful 22 performance run of A Christmas Carol at 6th Street Playhouse, Santa Rosa in the run up to the holidays. I'm so grateful to have been involved.

I have some exciting choreography news coming up soon, which I'll share here.

There will be more expandance workshops soon in Sonoma County, California. Updates here, or on the facebook page.

In the meantime, expandance wishes you all an expansive, creative, and loving 2017, and thanks you for your continued support!

Rivertown Revival - thank you

Thank you, everyone who came out to see us perform on Saturday at the Rivertown Revival in Petaluma. It was a super fun day, and quite the honor to perform in front of such huge crowds! Thank you to everyone involved in the Butterfly Ship, from the musicians to the dancers, and to Rivertown Revival for looking after everyone so well. We had a great day.

We even made it into the Press Democrat!

Performance this Saturday at Rivertown Revival

This Saturday: The Rivertown Revival festival in Petaluma!

Saturday July 16th 2016
McNear Peninsula, Petaluma, California
Festival runs 11am - 8pm

The Butterfly Ship, which comprises an incredibly talented group of Petaluma-based musicians, asked me to choreograph a couple of pieces for them for this festival, and we've been working on them for the last month. It's a nice festival, family friendly; there's music, food, an adult-sized see saw, art boats ... and us! It supports the work of the non-profit Friends of Petaluma River.
We're performing at the Aerial Rig at these times:

1pm
2:30pm
4pm
 
Our 20 minute sets will include dance, live original music, aerial silks, and spoken word poetry. 

How to get there:
 
The Rivertown Revival will take place on the McNear Peninsula, through the entrance of Steamer Landing Park, at D Street & Copeland St near the Petaluma River in beautiful Petaluma.
More info here
See you there!
