Although Goldie Peacock will be unable to participate in the rescheduled xyz nyc on SUNDAY NOV 18 (damn you Sandy,) all of us feverishly creating the show are excited to introduce LIZ PICCOLI.
Liz will be creating some magical, time-traveling dance for SUNDAY, NOV 18 at 7PM. We’re happy to have her.
LIZ PICCOLI (a proud member of AEA and AGMA) has enjoyed an extensive professional career as a performer, dance instructor, and choreographer. She was Co-Captain and Assistant Choreographer for the National Championship title winning Rutgers University Dance Team. Since college, she has performed regionally in “West Side Story” with the Virginia and Lyric Operas and other endeavors include choreographer for the Knicks’ City Dancers, featured swing dancer in Joe Lanteri’s “Zoot Suit Strut,” and back-up dancer for the artist PINK in a NBA commercial. She has also worked as a promotional choreographer with the Dodgers Theatricals to publicize Broadway’s “42nd Street” and Off-Broadway’s “Fame.” Liz performed in the off-Broadway show “The Thin Line” at Dance Theatre Workshop in NYC and three seasons at the Metropolitan Opera in productions of “Romeo and Juliet” and “The First Emperor.” Recent choreography projects include industrials for Sirius Satellite Radio, Random House Publishing, Michael Turco’s “Wonder” in Atlantic City and her new off-Broadway show/production company “Crazy Sexy Disco.” Recently, she has continued her performance career in “Shafrika, the White Girl,” Anika Larsen’s life-story gone off-Broadway at the Vineyard Theater, (choreographed by Tony Award Winning Assistant Latin Choreographer of “In the Heights,” Luis Salgado), the NYMF musical “Fat Camp,” and “Erotic Broadway” at the Triad. Most recently she has had her choreography seen with the New York Jazz Choreography Project at Alvin Ailey Citigroup Theater in NYC and the DUMBO Dance Festival in Brooklyn. Liz’s love and passion for dance and the arts has carried her far and continues to be the driving force in her every day life.
In case I didn’t say it loud enough:
