A Horse's Mouth First!
At the invitation of Ani Udovicki, head of the dance department at Frank Sinatra School of the Arts in Astoria, Queens, Jamie and Tina created their first Horses Mouth production with high school students. On March 18, the senior dance majors at the performing arts high school told their stories and danced for two enthusiastic audiences at the School's beautiful new Tony Bennett Concert Hall. Unexpected and valuable assistance was given to us by Joan Finkelstein, Director of Dance for the New York City Schools and long-time cast member of From the Horse's Mouth. The production was made possible by a generous grant from Exploring the Arts.
Tina and Jamie would love to bring From the Horse's Mouth to your community. If you know of an organization that is celebrating an occasion or commemorating an event, and you think it lends itself to a special Horse's Mouth chapter, please be in touch with our management company.
This makes a wonderful fundraising event.
