I previously wrote about my friend, Kristen, performing in Cloudless, a contemporary dance piece. Last night, Susan Marshall, the Coreographer and Artistic Director of the Susan Marshall Company, was awarded a Bessie. The Bessies are the New York Dance and Performance Awards. It’s a pretty big deal, and Kristen was definitely thrilled. Her company performed during the awards ceremony; afterwords we went to a party in South Street Seaport.
Again, it is such a thrill to be able to enjoy and share artistic endeavors. I believe Cloudless will be performed again early next year. I recommend checking it out if you are in town.

Kristen dancing with one of her fellow dancers, Darrin. It shouldn’t be a shock that professional dancers can dance very well in a casual situation. :-) My photo doesn’t do them justice.
