This Summer I’ve been doing a lot of updates. My website, my curriculum, my class plans, my personal goals, etc. I thought I’d share what this summer has looked like:
- established kjlangford dances
I am continuing to create choreographic work independently and submit it to festivals and other opportunities. To help fuel these practices I’ve established a project I’m calling kjlangford dances. It’s not exactly a dance company, but when I am working on choreography independently, it is created under that name. The best, though very pretentious, way to describe it is a home for my personal choreographic projects/endeavors.
- Major website updates
Check out my:
my choreography reel,
and my events page!
- I’ve been working on a new duet with 2 of my favorite dancers, Sarah Tipton and Ashanti Williams, here’s a sneak peek.
- I’ve had the pleasure of teaching for Arlington Heights High School’s Summer Dance program, Texas Ballet Theater School’s Junior Intensive, and JADE’s Summer Intensive. Next week I teach at Texas Dance Conservatory’s End of Summer Intensive.
- I’ve read 24 books (so far) this summer, and 29 this year.
- I’ve traveled to Chicago, New Jersey, and New York.
- I saw Hamilton in Chicago (again, I know, I’m the worst), and Great Comet (one of Josh Groban’s final performances) and Groundhog Day in NYC! Here in DFW I’ve seen Bruce Wood Dance Project, Danielle Georgiou’s Dance Group’s Donkey Beach, and imPULSE dance project’s Reflexion.
- Rehearsed and refined self portrait of my best friend
This is a solo for myself that I created earlier this year and was accepted to a performance at Big Rig Dance Collective’s Co-Op this weekend. It will be the first performance and work for kjlangford dances, and I hope to submit it to other festivals and performances for the 2017 season. Here’s a sneak peek!
- updating my dance class curriculum and sequence for the year
- Reviewing old and sketching new choreography for upcoming performances this Fall.
- updating various websites and social media I manage:

Although I have been very busy, as I hope you can see, summer went by in a blink and it’s pretty much time to start school… YAY. mostly.
