This week’s shoutout goes to the one and only Kevin “Iega” Jeff!
This guy is the bomb diggity. He’s been on Broadway. He is the co-founder and art director of Deeply Rooted Dance Theater. Boy, CAN HE DANCE! And he came all the way from NYC to help choreograph our production Higher Ground 5: Find a Way.
I think it’s so cool that someone as successful and established as Iega would want to team up with a small community theater in the heart of the mountains. He believes in us and has helped create something absolutely astounding. You’ll see, at the Godbey Appalachian Center, April 9th through 12th! (Email me for more details and ticket reservations)
One thing Iega said last week that really got me in the heart was that God can speak through the creative process. As a writer (and actress), I found that to be very inspiring. When you feel intuition and flow, don’t try to edit it—that’s God. Let Him do his thing.
Also, Iega called me beautiful on a day when I was fresh-faced and wearing a sweatshirt and leggings. SMILES FOR DAYS! 😀
I don’t know if you’ll see this, but thank you, Iega, for your time, support, and creative genius. You are truly an inspiration.
LOTS OF LOVE from me and everyone at HG! May God continue to bless you in all of your endeavors!
