ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Latosha Mitchell is a dancer, choreographer, and instructor born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. Her dance training includes jazz, African, modern, heels/street stilettos, and hip hop. She currently trains at Broadway Dance Center, EXPG-NYC, and Brickhouse NYC. Although her main focus is street stilettos/heels and hip hop, she fuses the different genres into her choreography. She is a dance instructor and creator of Femmeography in Heels, a fun and sexy heels class based in Midtown that focuses on technique, lines, grooves, and performance, all while feeling sexy and having fun. She has taught at Fit4Dance and Breakin Boundaries in Brooklyn, and for NYC Dance Week.
Gawain and the Green Knight are a folk duo, made up of Alexia Antoniou and Mike O’Malley (and often accompanied by their talentedly fingered and vocal-chorded friends. ) With their guitar and Irish Bouzouki in hand, the two breathe warm air into lungs that have long since disintegrated into dust, singing to life these relatable ghosts in warm, howling harmony. They’ve been barding around New York City together since January 2018, and are real delighted to share with you their first EP, Ghosties. To hear Mike’s original music, check out Mike O’Malley + Beastie Band!

He has also studied dance in the UK, at Trinity Laban and in West Africa, at the University of Ghana. And most recently completed his MFA at NYU Tisch, in 2016. Eiren has enjoyed a rich career as a teacher, performer, and creator and is looking forward to what’s to come.
