Cocoon Central Dance Team presents From Grindstone to Rhinestone: The 10th Anniversary Show

Cocoon Central Dance Team

Cocoon Central Dance Team is Sunita Mani, Tallie Medel, and Eleanore Pienta. Born out of extreme friendship and a romance with choreography, Cocoon have been New York City alt-comedy regulars since 2009 with appearances at Upright Citizens Brigade, The Chris Gethard Show (TruTV), MoMA PS1 and for some reason, the Opening Ceremony of the New York City Marathon. Their 2017 film SNOWY BING BONGS ACROSS THE NORTH STAR COMBAT ZONE played film festivals worldwide and garnered praise from IndieWire, Filmmaker Magazine and the failing New York Times. Independently, Mani, Medel and Pienta have been featured on G.L.O.W., Broad City, Search Party, and Inside Amy Schumer. Follow @cocooncentral on Instagram for sensual healing.

Cocoon Central Dance Team (Sunita Mani, Tallie Medel and Eleanore Pienta) have been dancing and farting together for ten years. YOU HEARD CORRECTLY....TEN YEARS. In 2009 these restless, starry-eyed roommates put on their metaphorical and literal tap shoes, kicked the cockroaches out of the way and said 5-6-7-8. Now, they have reached the number 10. And so, they humbly and of course loudly, invite you to celebrate their longevity in leotards as they present an evening of dance, comedy, dance-comedy, video, heartbreaking discography, lush aerial displays daringly attempted from the floor, spiraling friendship games, dangerous rumors about Brandy Melville, and ultimately, redemption. Come for the splits, stay for the lack of splits.
