In pursuing our quest for true improv artistic expression, we recently filmed a session with Eboni Adams and her dance troupe, performing with us, playing percussion accompaniment. Eboni and her dance partners have spent years together on stage as Celine Dion's dancers and while achieving world-wide recognition in that arena, they thoroughly enjoy spontaneous expression when they have the chance. As you may expect, working with such a well-known artist as Celine, every move they make on stage is choreographed and planned out...so, when we asked them to talk to us about this side of dance expression, they "jumped" at the chance. We're thankful to include their slant of this art form in our film.
Also filmed recently, we interviewed veteren Yoga instructor Joan Hyman about her experience of utilizing music in her yoga classes. Joan has been teaching yoga for many years and has used music in her classes to "wake up the soul", as she says. A truly beautiful spirit, we're happy to include Joan's expertise about the union of yoga and music.

On June 19th, we shot an interview with the multi-talented artist Timothy Drury. Timothy's photography work encompasses a world of abstract beauty, utilizing natural light and composition that remind one of the great French impressionistic painters. When we thought of who we wanted to represent the world of photography and creating this art spontaneously, Timothy came immediately to mind. Our interview with him will reveal an in-depth view of his creative process and discuss some of his beautiful works.
Along with Timothy's brilliant photo work, he also an accomplished musician, having recorded and toured with some of the biggest names in music. Just some of his credits include The Eagles, Bryan Adams, Melissa Etheridge, Stevie Nicks and currently, is a member of Whitesnake. He is also preparing a mulit-media performance for this fall, which will feature both his original music compositions and his photography.
