When with @cristycandler, always on an improv kick. We move without music and then just... find something later.
#repost @shortroundprods At @alvinailey with @joe_pinzon. Insanely inspired.
Improv teaches me to not be “good”, but to exercise what’s inside. While in Pittsburgh, I wanted to release some old ideas of who I thought I should be growing up. I wanted to surrender to the now. And I wanted to dance freely in my hometown without feeling paralyzing judgement. I met up with @marc_yaco, who captured perfectly how I felt during this improv. I’m so grateful for my black and gold roots. I’m grateful to my 3 hometown idols: Gene Kelly, Andy Warhol, and Fred Rogers. And I’m grateful to my grandfather who made his art in the 60’s and 70’s regardless of wether people liked it or not. 🖤💛🖤💛🖤💛🖤💛🖤💛🖤💛🖤
A thought for Sunday: Don’t play small. To me, it is inauthentic. The bolder we express, the clearer the answers and signs become, and the closer we get to the Truth (if we are listening).
Living it up on the creative panel with Lenora Nemetz and @karineplantadit at @rachellerak’ Ignite Convention for @dancemomstv ... glorious chaos was had by all!
#WorldTheaterDay with Royalty (and @darrencriss is fine, I guess, too). Chita is here schooling us in class, dedication, perseverance, and grace. We’ve got a lot of livin to do! #wbw 📸: @bruglikas

The world and it’s workings are wonderful. A stranger took this of us during an intimate conversation. He proceeded to find us to send it to us. My gratitude list is ever-growing.
Happy Birthday to one of the most thoughtful, caring, supportive, and talented people I’ve EVER met. @wheeldony, I’ve never felt so seen and appreciated than when I’m with you. I love our giggles and our out of the box humor. Your vigor for life and your passion for art are infectious in every scenario from dinner and a movie to a full scale production. I’LL TELL IT TO THE WORLD! I miss you.
Life is picking up, so I’m keeping up with it. All new @curtisbrownphotography on www.paulmcgill.org. Link in bio!
... now for the Big Finish.
A cheeky snippet from @bcefa Broadway Backwards with @andrewrannells and @gavincreelofficial. Full splashy opening number on Facebook...
Broadway Backwards was such a fun evening benefitting a great cause... but the best part was the process. As most of us know, these charity events can get stressful. This was the most relaxed and fun time making a big, splashy opening number. Kudos to @gavincreelofficial and @andrewrannells for a full out dance number, and a BIG BIG thank you to the 18 dancers, dance captains @kevinmurakami77 and @marissabarragan, and an INSANE stage management team who put in their time and efforts to make it a hit! We raised over $700k that night! 📸: @curtisbrownphotography
Congratulations to @andrewrannells for his book out today, Too Much Is Not Enough. He is a champion of the theater/TV crossover and an advocate for us all. Pick up a copy today.
I’m so proud to announce I’m now on the bicoastal journey as a choreographer with @msaagency ... I’m so grateful to be in the company of choreographers, directors, producers, and dancers I respect and have looked up to for quite a while now. Nothing has changed for me, however I am committed more than ever to making art that is equally reflective and joyful. On and on we go with an open heart and mind. ✨👟👟

Dance Break was a challenge. With 12 hours of studio time, it taught me to work quickly and kindly. It gave me the opportunity to be prepared and roll with the punches. It taught me about concept and message. Most importantly, it brought our dance community together. Here are the fruits of our labors... Call Me Al
