"Dance On" with Billie Mahoney
-- Setting Up at KCB --

Since April 2011 I've been shooting a television program with Billie Mahoney shown on Time Warner Cable called Dance On. It runs 29-min 30-sec. Billie started this program in 1981 in New York City. She interviews guests who are dancers, choreographers and others related to the field.

This page includes a video with my regular preparation to setup the show and pictures of Billie with guests, a visit to New York for a Luigi documentary and odd bits and pieces.
