Louisville Ballet’s premiere, “Spaghetti Western,” is created around the iconic film scores of Ennio Morricone and will be presented April 4-5.  My World Premiere to celebrate Smuin Ballet’s 20th Anniversary Season is set to the music of Antonio Vivaldi and will be performed May 2-25
 I am also pleased to announce that Cincinnati Ballet will be bringing “Caprice,” with music by Niccolo Paganini to the Joyce Theater in NYC, May 6-11.
   I am very excited about the return of “Bird’s Nest” for Washington Ballet January 29-February 2.  “Bird’s Nest,” with music by Charlie Parker, was first commissioned by the Vail International Dance Festival, and was premiered by Washington Ballet in 2000.
Also in 2014, several of my works will be performed by Diablo Ballet and Central West Ballet, among others.
