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 would like to share this little promotional video with you (below), and invite you to visit our Patreon pagePatreon is a wonderful platform that connects artists with their patrons - whether friends, family, fellow artists or friendly supporters - and allows a "patron" to pledge a monthly donation of his or her choice to help an artist in need (in exchange for signed goodies, exclusive invitations and other fun things)

We are asking for your support - whether your support means just sharing our Patreon page on Facebook, forwarding the message to other people, or helping us increase our patron number by becoming a "Firefly" patron (a beam of light!) for a mere $1/month. After all, every little bit will help us grow.

We passionately want to createcollaborate, and share our work with you and other people (and to always fairly compensate any artists who work with us). Art needs support - it always has! And now especially, when we are just at the beginning of everything, bursting at the seams with inspiration, ideas, and the anticipation of potential collaborations, we hope you will join us and support usin any way that you can, as we embark on our creative journey.

In the new year, we will also be a part of Fractured Atlas, an non-profit arts organization through which we will finally be able to receive tax-deductible donations - which will help us along as we hire more collaborators, dancers, musicians, participate in choreographic residencies away from the city, and produce studio showings and performances in 2017... so watch out for that, too!

In the mean time, enjoy the video. We thank you for your interest, enthusiasm, and support!
