After Dan’s House premiered last weekend, I traveled on to New York City. Andrew Chapman (who is featured in Dan’s House and resides in NYC) was unable to join us for the screenings in Tallahassee, so I went to him. Kit McDaniel, Andrew and I celebrated the success of the film by walking in Astoria Park and eating NY bagels together. It has been a year since I’ve been with them – my favorites…

The last night of my visit, during our family dinner, we received BIG news. Dan’s House has been selected to screen in the special shorts program as part of NYC’s Dance On Camera film festival (Jan. 31-Feb. 4, 2014). What an amazing email to receive while in NYC and amongst the cast of the film! Giddy and glee ensued.

A 10-hour plane ride later and I am in Jerusalem, Israel. On the first day here I swam in a cave, rode on a motorbike, helped prepare flowers for Shabbat and ate family dinner with my Jerusalem friends.

Over the week that I am here in Israel, I will spend time with friends, visit the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance (where I may teach next year if granted a Fulbright – fingers crossed), plant seeds for the next budding dance for camera project. I will also administratively facilitate the Margaret Jenkins Dance Company collaboration with Jerusalem based Kolben Dance Company (to premier as part of the MJDC’s 40th Anniversary season April 3-6, 2014 at Yerba Buena, SF, CA – save the date, it is going to be an epic evening of dance).
