In the studio.

My friend is in town for the holiday and we met up on Wednesday to work on some choreography we’ve been toying with for a bit. It felt so good to just be there, with really good music, and good company that understands how sacred that can be. My heart had yearned for this. It…

Reality.

I miss taking class. I miss taking class so much. I’m so grateful that little Voice in my head whispered to me the past five years, “don’t take this for granted.” Otherwise, I may be sadder than I currently am. Thankfully, I did my best to listen. I can look back from the beginning six…

Live A Great Story

I started this blog about five years ago, shortly after beginning ballet classes as an adult beginner.  It’s mind blowing to think of how much life has changed since then, even though it really doesn’t feel like it’s changed much at all.  I’ve grown. I’ve learned.  I’ve began accepting this life that is mine, even…

Nutcracker Cast List 2017

People have asked me how it feels coming into nutcracker  season this year.  Usually I’m gearing up along side the other dancers to tackle auditions, wait for the cast list to come out, and begin rehearsals. Then there’s the costume fittings and photo shoots and everything else that goes along with it.  How does it…
