On Saturday, December 7th Hollye Bynum premiered her dance company o f b o n e s || h o l l y e b y n u m. The Center for Performance Research in Brooklyn, NY had a full house minutes after the door opened. The waiting area filled with friends, family and lovers of dance. Hollye's social media presence did a lot to build interest and excitement for the show. Hollye used short videos to introduce followers to each dancer in the piece. You can watch these videos here.

The night also showed work by two other local female choreographers. Julie Edwards kicked off the evening with her piece French Lesson #3 that involved audience participation and set the mood of the evening. Leslie Guyton, the Artistic Director of Brooklyn's Movement Workshop Group, presented Both Bitter and Sweet Flow From The Same Mountain, which added a lot of energy to the room.

The dancing in mouthfull. was energetic, intriguing and haunting. It was a night that left audience members with a different feeling than the one that they came in with. mouthfull. had five dancers: Sam Owens, Leah Cernosek, Rebecca Kritzer, Melanie Gallo and Haley Harrison. Though Sam Owens had a beautiful and dark solo performance during the piece, each and every dancer was strong, featured and necessary to the success and story of the piece. I am certainly not an expert in dance, but I found mouthfull. moving and challenging. It had a darkness to it that set it apart and inspired introspection from it's audience members. It seemed to deal with real and relatable emotions.

With her premiere, Hollye Bynum proved that she is not only a choreographer to keep your eye on, but an up-and-coming business woman with a great dance company unfolding before her. To find out more about o f b o n e s || h o l l y e b y n u m, take a look at her website here. Be sure to follow the company on social media for more updates about upcoming shows and events.

The success of this show not only speaks to Hollye's talent, the strength of the performers, and the engagement of the audience. It also reminds us of the fantastic culture and artistic exposure we have in New York City, and that turning to social media to be reminded of it is always a good thing.
