Last week, I competed in a qualifier slam and was fortunate (shocked/thrilled/blessed/etc) enough to make it onto my first slam team! Even more exciting, the other members of the team are slam heavyweights Sonya Renee, Chris August, Chris Wilson, and Natalie E. Illum. We will be representing DC at the 2010 Southern Fried Slam in Knoxville, Tennessee from June 2nd through 5th. Southern Fried is a regional competition held in a different southern city each year — and it is the second largest team slam in the country.
We’re working on some great individual and group pieces and can’t wait to preview them at performances in DC on May 22 and May 28. I’ll post details when I have them!
