Torontos Original Choreographers Ball

15 Jan

Toronto’s Original Choreographers Ball took place on Sunday January 10th 2010, at the Mod Club to a venue filled with dancers, choreographers, family, friends, supporters, art lovers and the list goes on.

I was one of the dancers. I love to choreograph, however I was happy to dance and just focus on performing. The performance I was in, was choreographed by Esie Mensah, she choreographed an energetic African performance. Sorry I was trying to get all the dancers who were part of this performance together for a picture, but everyone was all over the place, it was really busy backstage.  On the other side I got the chance to watch the entire show, and I took quite a few pictures of the backstage madness. 

Could I say dancers have quite the personality, that I could testify to because I’m a wild child when my creative energy is out and about.

I wasn’t able to take as many pictures of the performances as I wanted to, due to where I was in the venue and the lighting. However I got a few good ones.

It was a night of dance, there were performances that brought different elements that I appreciated and enjoyed. I have to say we have some amazing and talented dancers here in this city, lets not forget that, and I want to applaud all the dancers and choreographers for putting themselves out there.

Enjoy the pictures.

Irvin Washington…Choreographed this number..I loved the story line:)

Well this one is for the ladies, Shavar Blackwood choreographed a sensual yet heated performance, and this was how it ended with a lot of top less guys on stage. So I asked them to pose when they finished there performance and they did.
