So thrilled to have partnered with Jacob Jonas The Company on presenting dance at the Santa Monica Pier this weekend. A big thank you to all who attended!

"Words can't express the feeling of presenting dance at a location that I call home. Thank you to the many artists that contributed their time, to Dance Camera West for your partnership, for the City of Santa Monica Government for your support, to the audiences that came to experience it, and to my love and partner Jill for seeing it through. Dance is a medium I am deeply passionate about and it was an honor to see the many voices come together and communicate their vision. We do this for love, we do this for community, we do this for dance."
