Follow Your Heart Premieres Next Week in Toronto

On the way to Toronto for the final week of rehearsals and the premiere of the production, “Follow Your Heart” at the Harbourfront centre .
I’ve been working with Evolution Dance Theatre for 2 years on this show – the passion and visions of the cast and crew of nearly 60 individuals is something I am honored to be a part of.

“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.” ― Phil Jackson

If you can make it to Toronto for any of the show dates, May 8th-11th, I guarantee this will be a one-of-a-kind multicultural, multidisciplinary spectacle. Be sure to holler at me if you’re there!
