  • "The modern pieces in the music invited a looseness to the choreography that seemed to liberate everyone concerned. Shoulders rolled and the movement flowed."

Belmont (2012)

Light-hearted, playful and wistfully nostalgic, Belmont pays homage to the places and people that have made the SE Portland neighborhood our home for over a quarter century. Cast with dancing friends we have known nearly as long, the piece also revisits the joy of long-time artistic relationships.
