Grammy Winning Jazz and Dance Come Together

Take a look at Ryan Schmidt and Milan Misko in “Slate,” which I choreographed to Maria Schneider’s “Rich’s Piece.”

maria-schneider-at-standard09Two-time Grammy award winner, Maria Schneider will be at the Jazz Standard in NYC this week, so don’t miss her! Her orchestra will be in full style through this Sunday the 29th of November.  Jazz music and dance came together this past August when I choreographed two pieces to her songs, “Rich’s Piece” and “Aires de Lando,” off her Grammy award winning, Sky Blue.

I can’t wait to hear her premiere she wrote for her  band this season.  She told me she could see a dance to it! I’m sure I’ll need to control myself in my seat as I open my ears to the possibilities this weekend!! Good luck, Maria!

Another Great Photographer!

r90_8aFay Li is another in the line of great photographers we’ve used at Adams Company Dance. Not only does she “get right in there with all the action,” but she also steps back to analyze the best angle and outcome for any shot. Not specifically knowing dance, she proved to know the ins & outs of movement, in a style all her own! Hope you find time to peruse her website. You’ll find more pics of my piece, “Cheap Seats,” if you click the tab labeled “Featured.”
