The light ray is very fitting in this picture. There are some people that you are destined to meet.
Many years ago, Shabina Bharat told me that they had a guest artist in at her school, and that I should think about using her in Larchaud Dance. She said, “Her work is physical, dynamic, and creative. She reminds me of you alot, a younger version of you.” The artist in question was Patrizia Ferlisi. Alas, I was not looking for any dancers at the time. Years later, Patrizia and I met teaching at a studio together, and the rest is history. I actually forgot about what Shabina had said to me, until she reminded me when I asked Patrizia to perform in Larchaud Dance’s Gridlock. I now have the pleasure of working for Patrizia at Zdance, a competitive dance studio that operates like an elite youth performance company. It is wonderful to be able to work somewhere that is absolutely aligned with your values and expectations as an artist and an educator. Whenever I leave the studio, I am energized and inspired by these young artists and my colleagues. Patrizia has created an atmosphere at Zdance that provides high quality dance education/training with a strong focus on fostering the artistry/igniting the passion in each dancer. The senior team is run very much like a professional company, and they are constantly recognized for their mature approach and execution of the work. Congratulations @treatsy_ & @zdance_movement.inc for a successful weekend! Thanks for inviting me along for the ride! #dancehere #highquality #pro #youthdancecompany
