Tammy McCall Browning is a proud graduate of Spelman College. She has been featured as "momager" of her son, artist Freco and known to many as a member of Real Housewives of Atlanta season 8. Mrs. Browning is the principal dancer of Atlanta based modern ballet company Good Moves. She is also the co-designer of fashion label Does It Dance with her mentor Annette Lewis. Tammy took her love of vintage clothing and turned it into a wardrobe rental business (PlanetFreedomFashion)! Planet Freedom specializes in dressing lead actresses. Planet Freedom has had the pleasure of working with Ruth Carter, costumers from Being Mary Jane, and several other network shows filming in the Atlanta area.
Originally from the Pacific Northwest, Nathan Griswold began his dance training with Kay Englert in Tacoma, Washington. After finishing his formal dance training at the Ben Stevenson Academy in Houston, Texas he danced professionally with the Houston Ballet, Alberta Ballet and the Atlanta Ballet. He has been a guest artist with the Los Angeles Chamber Ballet and North Carolina Dance Theater. During his time at Alberta Ballet, Nathan toured extensively through the US, Canada and China.
In 2010 Nathan moved to Europe where he danced for Ballett Augsburg and the National Theater Mannheim. His performance repertoire includes works by Itzik Galili, Leo Mujic, Emily Molnar, Christian Spuck, Kevin O’Day and Alejandro Cerrudo among others. In the summer of 2011 Nathan began choreographing stage works in Germany. He created his first piece “Something Serious” for Ballett Augsburg and later restaged the piece for the State Theater of Ulm. Atlanta Ballet’s “Wabi Sabi” invited Mr. Griswold in 2012 for the creation of “Two and a Half Songs”. This work premiered in the Atlanta Botanical Gardens and is currently being toured to communities in and surrounding Atlanta. Mr. Griswold’s last work in Europe, “Fliege Fliege”, was critiqued as the “highpoint” in Ballet Augsburg’s Destillation #3 evening. Nathan worked numerous times with the Opera department in Theater Augsburg to create elaborate, collaborative pieces for the theater’s annual Opernball.
Returning to Atlanta in the beginning of 2014, Nathan guests regularly with the Atlanta Ballet, teaches dance, and has cofounded a physical theater and installation company with other local dance, music and theater artists. The company, “Fly on a Wall”, strives to infuse contemporary movement into installation and dramatic theater work. Through Fly on a Wall, Nathan has created and performed works for the Georgia Ballet, Art on the Atlanta Beltline, Synchronicity Theatre, the city of Duluth, EyeDrum, Dashboard and the Alliance Theatre.
