I hope you are having a safe and happy May. I am currently finishing up my fifth year as an adjunct professor at SUNY Purchase, and wow what a year it has been! I am grateful for all the support and technology that made it happen, and so proud of my students who worked through such a challenging year. I am also thrilled to say that Spark Movement Collective performed safely outdoors in Manhattan to an energetic audience. Spark also performed through a virtual platform for over 275 students in April in a bilingual children's show that included audience creativity, input, and interaction. I am excited to begin a new work for Spark's Fall season that will feature my Armenian background. The full program will highlight diverse perspectives and backgrounds, and help to amplify voices as a way to inspire and educate. Please consider making a donation to Spark, and help us bring this educational and inspiring program to life. Please donate here! I am so grateful for all the people who helped me through my first year as the Artistic Director of Spark Movement Collective.
