One Sunday morning in February, about a dozen kids and a bunch of adults woke up at the crack of dawn and started running through the middle of the street. Did they all go crazy? Was there something in the water? Nope. They were just dancers.
Park Hill Dance Academy and I planned out this elaborate dance creative session to promote their show, At A Crossroads (get tickets here!). We wanted to convey that theme of being at a crossroads in life, of decision making and turning points.
Mary Chase Doll is one of the the guest choreographers for this work and she had the idea to do the photoshoot at the intersection by the dance studio. We had parents pushing the crosswalk buttons and watching for cars. I was up on a huge ladder, and Mary was shouting directions at the dancers from off camera. It was really fun to see everything come together to create Mary’s vision for the poster.
