Little Shoes, Big Frame
Premiering in April 2019 at the Central New York Ballroom Showcase, Little Shoes, Big Frame explores gender and bodily roles I play as a female professional ballroom dancer. Set to the Caro Emerald song “Coming Back as a Man” from her 2012 album The Shocking Miss Emerald, this film features professional dancers from the Tallahassee Fred Astaire studio.
Dinner, Date, Exsanguinate
As I was preparing to leave Syracuse, NY in 2017, I hatched a plan with fellow social dancer Andrew Banas to make a screendance using West Coast Swing. Very little narrative work with West Coast Swing exists for stage or screen, and this nutty and darkly humorous film was both a ton of fun to shoot and inspires me to push social dance idioms in new directions.
