It is with great pleasure and giddiness and gratitude that we announce: we've just had our choreographic debut onstage at The Actors Fund Arts Center! On April 7th, 8th and 9th, we premiered our newest ballet, 'STRATA', choreographed and performed by the three of us in collaboration with composer and percussionist Max Kanowitz and visual artist Nancy Baker, at three sold-out performances of CounterPointe5 -- Norte Maar's fifth annual showcase that presents new work by women choreographers in collaboration with women visual artists.

We're so honored to have been part of CounterPointe5, and we have to thank Jason Andrew and Julia Gleich, co-founders of Norte Maar and dance and visual art curators of CounterPointe, for their generosity, encouragement and support, and for wanting to give us more and more opportunities to create and collaborate.

We have to also thank our generous Patrons on Patreon, without whom we could not have spent all that time in the studio, experimenting, creating, erasing, editing, failing, finding, discovering, playing, committing, learning, growing.

SO, THANK YOU, dear Patrons, collaborators, friends, supporters, and mentors - for helping us turn our "insane dreams into reality". When we started this company in the summer of 2016, we could never have imagined all of this taking place only nine months later!

Love! And more love!

Amy, Jordan, and Tiffany

We are thrilled to announce that we've just had our very first (and successful!) filming and showing of our work in New York City. (Shoutout and special thanks to Mr. Jonathan Russo for pushing us to open this filming to our friends.)

It was held on Thursday, November 17th, at Gibney Dance Center in Downtown Manhattan. We showed 'convergence/divergence', a duet for two women that features Amy Saunder and Tiffany Mangulabnan accompanied by upright bassist Peter Maness; and 'If I Were a Woman', a trio that highlights the strength and vulnerability of Jordan Miller and which is one of the first fragments of a larger ballet we're in the process of building to the original music of Megg Farrell.

All of this was filmed by our friend and collaborator, Sergio CarrascoWe can't wait to share these videos with you! But for now, check out our Instagram to see photos from the showing. And i
f you didn't make it to this one, we hope you'll join us for the next one!

Thank you so much for your support and enthusiasm, those of you who joined us on Thursday, and those of you who were there with us in spirit. We truly appreciate you.
