Daniel Returns from Europe

“The gift of these past months was the time and space to be immersed in an extended creative pool. Alongside the Company’s teaching and choreographic engagements, the focus of the fall is editing the various film projects shot in France and Spain. The beauty of the landscapes and the warmth of the people have brought tremendous inspiration. I look forward to sharing this work over the coming months. Thank you for following the journey on the blog. More stories to come as the films are released!”
