When contacted, Monica says Ryan Heffington (dancer) had initially agreed to choreograph the piece. But things didn’t work out with him, and she desperately needed a new choreographer. “Reshma is my long-time friend and collaborator. I reached out to her, and she recommended Jasmine Albuquerque from an inspiration dance performance trio. Jasmine and I had a couple of Skype chats, and I decided to hire her to choreograph the video. Then, because of budgetary constraints, she taught Reshma the choreography, and I flew Reshma down as my principle choreographer and dancer,” adds Monica.
