Brookeville, MD: 1st graders at Sherwood Elementary in performing to Yankee Doodle Dandy

This is a great program for children ages K-5th grades but could be adapted
for children of all ages.  It takes different forms depending on the resources of the school.

Shakespeare and the Dance

I presented this program twice at PS 166, the Richard Rodgers School of Arts & Technology. It included teaching pavane and brawls plus short pantomimes and mock battles using text from Shakespeare's plays.

Weddings

Why not spice up your wedding festivities with a little baroque intrigue!  I have worked with couples to add this colorful element to their wedding parties!


Pictured above is a performance I gave during a wedding reception at a historic Inn located in upstate NY.   I choreographed a suite of dances to music by Henry Purcell.  The theme was love, of course!
