Douglas Melini's paintings are featured in Smuin Contemporary Ballet's "Salsa ’Til Dawn," choreographed by Pulitzer Prize Winning and Tony Nominated Darrell Grand Moultrie.
"Music is always the complete inspiration for me. It’s been such an honor to work with an artistic giant like Charles [Fox] and bring his music to life by marrying it with the physicality of dance. With my choreography, I like to celebrate the joy of movement alongside the discipline of the dancers and their technique. Because joy is not trivial! All emotions matter and we need joy in our lives." - Darrell Grand Moultrie
