For Rose – about the passing of choreographer Benita Bike's mother Rose. Stark and poignant, this dance touches on complicated feelings of love, discordance, and death.

Aspects of Me – a celebration of the complexity of self with solos and duets titled “Me and Myself,” “Me and the Branch,” and “Me and Her”

Griot Songs – 3 stages of womanhood: child into woman, young womanhood, and maturity

Plugged – explores our relationships to the machines that occupy our world and how these machines affect our sensitivity to nature, quiet, and the earth

Schoenfield Dances – features a rag, fughetta, shuffle, and boogie, melding early 20th century popular dance with a classical movement sensibility
