Catch him performing with FIONA at South 4th Bar, on the web with Ground Floor Comedy, as the poet laureate of Legion's "Goofy", or on one of Brooklyn's many stand up shows.

Cocoon Central Dance Team
Cocoon Central Dance Team
Cocoon Central Dance Team is an energy packed dance group ready to wet your pants. You can see us performing our choreographed routines at comedy variety shows, in music videos, and as back up dancers for musical acts such as HUSH HUSH, ILLUSTRATE, and TOYS AND TINY INSTRUMENTS BAND.

Our strengths: slapping, fast feet, pelvic impulses, costumes, jewel placement, hunger for strength, good intentions, aesthetically pleasing, feeling it.

Places we’ve performed: Upright Citizens Brigade NYC/LA, The PIT (NYC), 92Y TRIBECA (NYC), The Bell House (Brooklyn), Petri Space (Brooklyn), The Suffolk Theatre (NYC), Under St. Marks (NYC), Tufts University, ABC No Rio (NYC), Bruar Falls (Brooklyn) and more.

History: Originating as house dancers for The Moon Comedy Variety Show, Cocoon Central Dance Team flexed her muscle in numerous dance genres and styles to showcase bi-weekly. She dabbled in ecstatic jazz, sexy independent lyrical, sexy dependent lyrical, recital hip-hop, video girl improvisation, and animal masks. During this time, CCDT was also invited to perform as guests on other variety shows and eventually partnered with a comedy group called COGNAC to perform monthly inspirations at Under St. Marks Theatre. David Letterman, here we come.
