a bit about the dancers:
Alexandria Yalj -self producing performance artist with an MFA in choreography from CalArts. If she is not chasing the sun regardless of direction, she's probably diligently coordinating the next Collective Movement. As artistic director of Collective Movement, Alexandria has had the extreme pleasure in forming a pick up dance company that embodies an organically radical approach to choreography. Her unique choreographic works haven been presented in her native New York City as well as New Hampshire, Fresno City College, Pepperdine University, Berkshire Fringe Festival and here in Los Angeles. A current company member of Rosanna Gamson/World Wide, Alexandria is constantly searching for new approaches to expression and communication capacity of the body.
Leslie Curtis, originally from Pasadena, California, discovered dance while at the University of Michigan as a political science major. Compelled to continue his studies in dance, he transferred to the Sharon Disney Lund School of Dance at CalArts on a merit scholarship in 2008 and received his BFA in Dance and Choreography in the spring of 2011. Leslie is now a freelance dancer based out of Los Angeles. He has most recently performed with Stephan Koplowitz in Red Line Time, a site-specific piece performed in the LA Metro. He also appeared in Barak Marshall's work MONGER with the Los Angeles company BODYTRAFFIC. Leslie continues to teach all styles of dance, as well as pilates in the Los Angeles area
