New Channel

Hi dance friends! Long time no see. We have been a bit busy and I haven't been able to dance in a while due to horrible pelvic pain. Ugh. Can't wait to get back to it in the new year. I have decided to create a YouTube channel to document baby things as well as my journey back to dance/performing. Please click here and hit that subscribe button. Please also let me know if there is anything in particular you would like to see. I'm always up for sharing dance stories and advice. All of the following videos and more can be found on there already. Thanks for watching!

NYE




I spent New Year's Eve dancing at a party with Tryon Entertainment in The Bahamas. I can't even describe how amazing it felt to be traveling outside of the US to do what I love with friends again. We even had an entire day to go to the beach and nearby Baha Mar. Thank you to my husband for supporting my decision to go instead of spending our first married NYE together. At the event, we greeted arriving guests and then danced the night away poolside. Close to midnight we realized that Justin Timberlake was there! 

So much has changed with travel so we had to get tested to enter and leave the country. All was fine, but it was definitely stressful waiting for the results. It was definitely worth it and I hope that more opportunities like this come up again soon. After a crazy 2 years, I think it is so important to just say YES and go for our dreams. I was getting a little down toward the end of last year. It's hard to see your industry completely destroyed and then slowly comeback in a totally different way. Things always seem to come up when you need them most. It renewed my love of this life.

You Can Can Live Your Dreams.

My latest gig was at a Moulin Rouge themed party. We had rehearsal the day of since we performed a can can number. I'm glad we did since we did those over the leg cartwheels with a partner. That is probably my favorite move, but I'm a lefty so I had to learn right. All went well! The decor was so cute from the windmill to an ice Eiffel Tower and life size martini glass with a performer inside! Jump splits and high kicks always seem to find their way back into my life. Thank you Pzazz Productions. 

After our performance, we helped get the party going. I learned some fancy ballroom moves with a guest. I've been wanting to take ballroom forever. I signed up for ballroom club in college, but was too nervous to dance with strangers (I had never partnered before I booked my first professional job) and only went to one meet up. Hopefully Max will take lessons with me soon. I choreographed a little Waltz for our first dance so I'm assuming he will go along with it ; )

Married in My La Duca's

Surprise, surprise…I got married wearing La Duca Shoes. La Duca’s have danced with me for 15 years through summer intensives, at too many auditions to count, around the world on a ship, during my dream job with Susan Stroman, and at so many other life changing jobs, events, and classes. But most importantly, on my wedding day. Thank you Max for my gorgeous custom wedding shoes. Although they are no longer perfectly white and glittery post-wedding, I have the best memories of marrying you in a garden and dancing (… and jump splitting) the night away.
