Meet Jena Michele Kovash

The light at the end of the tunnel is beginning to crest...

Kristyn McGeehan and I are almost finished with the choreography for Composed! Her work, titled Chiaroscuro is looking fantastic. I am consistently awed by Kristyn's creativity and vision. In dance it is rare and refreshing to see new movement I have never seen before, and Kristyn never fails to make my jaw drop. Yesterday during Kristyn's rehearsal I saw Jena and Stephen do a complete revolution in a lift, face to face and right-side up, with Jena's legs extended absolutely perpendicular to the ceiling. Try to imagine that.

My new work is titled 4.3.5. I am not telling a story or making a statement; it is simply a dance. The lack of drama does seem a little bit different from my usual M.O. Last night I was talking to my mom on the phone about this piece and she asked if she was going to cry when she sees it. I told her that this ballet is not at all depressing and no one dies so I didn't think she would. I think my mom may even smile, or better yet, laugh!

The six BCD company members have been working harder than ever for Composed, as has our apprentice, Kayte Porter. Since she has been the only understudy, I've thrown Kayte into the run-thrus a few times now and she always receives applause from the company for hitting the choreography.

Five more weeks until curtain. See you there.
