Hello POON Lovers

Jazz Age Lawn Party

Jazz Age Lawn Party

We have been so busy March – July I haven’t had a second to post.  Did you miss me? Here is where I have been with my gaggle of girls and some guys:

First, I have been archiving all 20 years of my past work and putting finishing touches on the website.  Arduous.  Took forever. Can we be done yet? HELP! Then as a REWARD, I went back in the studio to choreograph a Busby Berkeley style number for the newly created Dreamland Follies performed as part of the Jazz Age Lawn Party at Governor’s Island.

Stunning, right? Headresses by Gretchen Fenston, Costumes by Diana Son. Gregory Moore is the dashing gentleman in top hat and cane. Check us out in the NYTimes Style section photographed by Bill Cunningham!  We are the top 3 photos.  I could not be MORE proud.

On Set with Miasha and 'Everybody's Beautiful"

Then, I choreographed a music video for Miasha Fischer with the incomparable PR Brown directing. The song is called “Beautiful When You’re Dancing” because guess what?  WE ALL ARE 

Live Performances with Lightouts

We just finished a performance with Lightouts at The Highline Ballroom and are busy as bees in the studio making up movement to more songs for future shows and upcoming videos.

White patent leather pumps (go-go circa 1971) is the new look for our lightouts gigs.   The look comes from this concept:  Sharon Stone and Sophia Loren had a date with Bob Fosse.  He being the stud that he is, gives them both babies.  These babies come out SO RARE and SO BEAUTIFUL that they grow up FAST enough to dance their way out of a Fellini Film where every character comes out of a lucid yet psychotropic dream.

Back to work now.  Getting ready to perform as VENUS in my friends wedding.  Dresses by Elisa Jimenez.   Pics to come end of July.

We love upstate NY

As soon as we had a free moment, we headed upstate to scout locations for Tom Rossi’s new music video for “All of her Splendor”. ”Splendor” is gonna be a mix of my ladies dancing in the green fields of upstate NY and then deconstructing that movement within an old crumbling antique structure that is literally falling Apart.

Cannot WAIT to make this happen.  Look for it in September.

The Eloise Suite

Hi all!! Been working with Lightouts, a cool Brooklyn band on their live show and their music videos. I love this song The Eloise Suite that we made a music video for in November and since a lot of my fave parts of the dance are not in the music video, I am gonna shoot the entire dance as a little film sometimes in March. Here is the actual video and then below it a rehearsal of the actual dance so far. Keep you posted on how it all comes out! Look for Lightouts at SXSW next month!

Official "Anyways" CeeLo Video

Check out the video I choreographed for Cee-lo’s song “Anyways”. Will post the Director’s cut in the new year (with much more dancing!!!).

CeeLo "Anyways" Video

Just wrapped a Cee-lo video for a song called Anyways-look for it on MTV next week!
Produced by HoneyBadger and Directed by Wonford St James.
I had such an amazing time with the most talented dancers and crew ever. Looking forward to working with them all again soon!

Lightouts

We had a great video shoot last night with Lightouts, a brooklyn band in my loft. Day of the dead meets Renaissance-Rock-n-Gogo. The ladies killed it! Here are a few snapshots-more photos to come.

Soaking Wet

Sorry to have been so out of touch. Its been way too long since my last post. I have been a busy little bee finishing AIRTIGHT, a film I shot about 7 years ago. Please have a look here and tell me what you think. The film has guest appearances by Jim Findlay, Cynthia Hopkins, DJ Mendel, Tom Rossi, Jeff Sugg, Miguel Villalobos and many other amazing creatures. AIRTIGHT just had its first screening at the Soaking Wet series curated by David Parker and Jeff Kazin of The Bang Group and the audience dug it.

Now I am going into hibernation again with more editing and archiving of old dance footage to be posted by the new year. I finally finished our complete Crush The Pearl (CTP) video so have a look at the excerpt piece here if you want.
Ok babe. That’s my update for now. Hope all is well with you and yours.

Love, Jordana
