A Friend Like You
Inspired by The Winnie-the-Pooh Stories by A.A. Milne and illustrations by E.H. Shepherd, “A Friend Like You” is a ballet for all ages choreographed as a part of Sylvana Christopher’s thesis work in her completion of The ICONS Choreographic Institute. My esteemed cohort included Valerie Dunham, Teresa Dominick, Millie Parker and Mimi Noorani. We embarked August of 2020 on a 9 month program designed by Bulgarian American Choreographer Vladimir Angelov. Our deep dive into our work to become professional choreographers was interrupted and suspended as the pandemic hit the U.S. in March 2020. In July 2021, post-vaccination, we restarted the program to finish our thesis works aiming for presentation at Dance Loft on 14 theater Sept 11 & 12th 2021.
