This work, for 12 women (double cast), explored ideas of "crossing" in a literal and metaphoric sense as the dancers moved across the stage in various patterns and phrases while the movement themes were derived from ideas of how these women would cross over into their professional lives, forging bonds, finding ways to open doors and seek the right paths for themselves. I taught several movement phrases and then had the dancers manipulate them in their own unique ways. Each dancer also created her own phrases based on the themes of crossing, transitions, next steps, and mentors, which were then grouped together with other dancers' material.
