Dear friend,

Recently Ekklesia Contemporary Ballet, based in Middletown, Connecticut, choreographed dance to the song First Momento: The Birth. This song is written by Ameen Mokdad and is from Cuatro Puntos' 2020 release titled The Curve. The video was done in partnership with the Episcopal Church in Connecticut for their annual convention, and it was filmed at Christ Church Cathedral in Hartford.

Ekklesia Contemporary Ballet is continuing a partnership with Cuatro Puntos as part of our 10th Anniversary season titled Bridges. They are currently working on choreography for many more songs from The Curve. When Ameen Mokdad visits the USA in April and May 2023, Cuatro Puntos Ensemble, Ekklesia, and Ameen Mokdad will present live performances of The Curve around the region.
