It's happening this weekend!

I just finished editing Where Women Don't Dance this past Saturday!! I can hardly believe that after five years, I finally have an edited film and a preview showing on the calendar.

Chicago friends, please join us for:
Where Women Don't Dance (a preview)
following Nejla Y. Yatkin's "What Dreams May Come"
at Links Hall in Chicago, IL 
April 3, 4 & 5 at 7pm


If you can't make it to the preview - don't worry! When the sound score is finished and all final touches are complete, I'll announce our official New York City premiere.

And I haven't forgotten that I need to send copies to all of you who donated to the film and requested your own version to watch at home!

Thank you again for helping me take this film from footage to reality!!

When I double majored in dance and broadcast video, I had no idea where it would lead. Now, when I sit in a dark theater watching dance, typing as many notes as possible into my iPhone, I pinch myself and wonder if there's any place I'd rather be. (The answer is NO!)

Whenever I walk into a theater, it feels like home. Whether it's midtown Manhattan, Vail, CO, or Becket, MA, each and every day I am inspired by the work that I do.

More than anything, I want artists to have beautiful video to showcase their work so they can book more performances and keep sharing what they do best. I happily work with my husband, Christopher Duggan, an amazing photographer, and our incredibly talented team.
