Elton John’s song, “I’m Still Standing,” seems appropriate for 2022. With the world’s events making us all feel like we’re at our rope’s end, it would seem that any artistic endeavor would be impossible. Somehow, through all the fits and starts, and the momentum slowing down due to COVID’s unpredictable nature, I was able to manage braving the elements to create, remake, and be honored to get back in the studio and on a world class stage in 2022. Without a lot left in my tank, I cruised to the last calendar page of December, where ACD was on the bill of the American Dance Guild’s festival at the Ailey Citigroup Theater, highlighting my year. Thanks to the dancers and all the behind-the-scenes helpers, 2022 was one for the books!
