+ Artistic Director


Founding Artistic Director, The New York Song & Dance Company
NYSDC was created in the spring of 2007 with the idea that all peoples of all nations understand the universal languages of song and dance. NYSD explores a wide-range of dance in American culture, using rhythm as a common denominator. Combining old-style hoofing and theater dance from throughout the century, we create a show that does more than convey a simple history. A combination of music and performance styles from American composers, dancers, and choreographers is melded together in the hands, feet, and voices of our company to create an entertaining show that unites everyone in the room with a kind of contagious joy. Our hope is to reach across cultural boundaries and differences, to touch the hearts of audiences and to honor the connection that has existed, and will always exist between us.
