Kimmie Allen is a New Orleans based freelance dancer and teacher. Originally from Natchitoches, Louisiana, her musical upbringing has always had a strong influence on her dancing style. While exploring phrasing and timing, her classes also investigate space and the anatomical sequences of the body, leading to tactile and dynamically fluid movement.
Joe Goldberg is a reed player in New Orleans leading his own 7 piece swing band Joe Goldberg and The Function as well as being a member of the Smoking Time Jazz Club for a few years. Joe plays with plenty of rhythm when he solos, uses space sometimes, and rarely gets lost during a Jason Marsalis drum solo.
