Dance and Movement YOGA PRIVATES. PILATES PRIVATES. DANCE PRIVATES. If you are looking to become the next Fred Astaire or Ginger Rogers, then you've come to the right place.

If you are looking to become the "OM" chanting, deep-breathing, split-doing yoga sensation, then you have come to the right place. If you want long lean legs and abs of steel, then it is your lucky day.

Operating as usual

Major Spoiler Alert!
************************************************
I've had to keep this on the down low for the last year, but I am excited to release a small cover art of my forthcoming book, Behind the Screen: Tap Dance, Race, and Invisibility During Hollywood's Golden Age. The ridiculously talented and beautiful human listened to my crazy vision and then turned it into a reality. I asked if she might be able to fashion some gloved hands in the style of those dancing gloves from the 1936 Mickey Mouse cartoon, Through the Mirror. Voilà! Kira created these amazing dancing gloves from of my hands . I specifically wanted them to look like something you might see on a model sheet rather than super polished because one of the major promises of this book is that you will start to see things as they really are, not the varnished version that Hollywood hopes you'll see. I think she nailed it! Thank you, Kira!

¿Putin está muerto? Humored by how catchy this clickbait title is in German, Spanish, Farsi, and French. Glad to see it making the rounds.

Last week my dream of being a guest on came true! My interview with Robin Young on the role of the famous ballet Swan Lake in the Kremlin is live now on . It will also be around indefinitely on your favorite podcast app such as Google podcasts, and more.

Shoutout to Shivani Dubey and for interviewing me for this article on reboots and remakes.

Is Putin Dead? Not yet, but they are asking this question in Tehran. I'm totally flattered that my article on Swan Lake and the Kremlin was translated into Farsi for . For the record I have no idea what any of this says so if you speak Farsi, feel free to let me know if they got the main ideas across and the gist of my bio correct. 🤔

Happy National Tap Dance Day.
********************************
Stay tuned as I release more images from my book over the next few months. Pictured here is Ford Lee “Buck” Washington and John “Bubbles” Sublett perform a song and dance medley in Varsity Show, 1937. (Private collection). If you haven't seen John Bubbles two perform, you must stop what you're doing and immediately go watch Varsity Show, Cabin in the Sky, or A Song is Born. I'd recommend the first so you can see their vaudeville act intact (meaning with Buck).

Excited to share this piece I wrote for on the famous Russian ballet Swan Lake. While many are familiar with the famous pas de quatre or the idea of the black swan, few recognize the classical ballet's political implications, especially as they concern the Kremlin. Read my article to see why it's so important that we don't simply pray for Russian television to air the classic Swan Lake, but instead that we cheer for a new production, led by Ukraine's army of activist ballet bodies.

Fragments.
This past week we've been studying the amazing work of and Holocaust dance. I thought it might be interesting to look at some of her ideas in the context of other historical events and moments so we trekked to the other side of campus and did some site specific work in front of very own Berlin Wall fragment. .
