Dea furthered her training with NYR, Funkanometry SD, Boxcuttuhz, and Super Galactic Beat Manipulators. Dea is now happy to call Cookies (formerly known as Choreo Cookies) home and is also a current member of Frenemies.

2013 Fall Photo Shoot

Posted By epicmotion / December, 19, 2013 / 0 comments

The photo shoot is always one of the highlights of the season and this time around we went downtown to Tribeca to take advantage of the area’s unique atmosphere. Shot over two days back in late-October, the photos are the work of photographer Roman Aguila and our marketing director Omari Allen (yours truly). You can find more photos from the shoot around the rest of the website as well as on our Facebook page, and they will be used throughout the remainder of the season for promotional materials.

Check out some candids and outtakes from the shoot!
