What Wendy’s Watching

In 2017 Dance Magazine asked me to create video spots as previews of exciting dance to come. Videographer Kelsey Grills and I would go to the site of an upcoming performance, and she would shoot me talking about it, on location. I recently discovered that these clips have migrated from dancemedia.com to YouTube. All were shot in 2017 or 2018.
