What you have inside you is unique. If you are aware enough to recognize that you possess something that you would like to share with the world, then I hope you’ll find the courage to do so. Whatever you do, I hope you won’t let other people make you feel that it’s not worth sharing, […]

Still missing dance…

May 29th, 2014

I can’t wait to get back on the dance floor. It’s been over two months, which has felt like over two months of being a fish out of water. Amazing that I survived two years away from dance in the past! I was reviewing some of my practice footage from before my injury in March, […]

Injured Again :(

April 7th, 2014

Sigh.. I’m injured, again :/ I’ve been injured since March 12th. I traveled to Orlando, FL for work, and then traveled to Tampa, FL to visit my family. I scheduled lessons with Alexander Voskalchuk and Veronika Egorova while I was in Tampa. The lessons were very insightful! I was so very excited to integrate everything […]

Dancing again!

January 23rd, 2014

After my last competition, I had to take a break from dancing for almost two years, first because of an injury to my big toes, and then exacerbated by a nearly fatal car accident. Not fun… not fun at all! But, there’s good news. I’m back to dance! Actually, it’s now been 14 months since […]

I’m still being bad at updating this regularly! Lately, I’ve been skating often ^_^ I skated for a couple of hours at open skate this afternoon, and had a lot of fun. I made a lot of improvement on my spins, and I learned my first jump off the toe pick landing on the other […]

Time Flies…

June 11th, 2011

It’s been a long time since my last post. And not because there was nothing to write about. It so often seems that when there’s the most to write about, there’s also the least time, or energy, to write about it! I need to be more diligent about writing! Well – lets see… since my […]

These are the videos from the finals of the 2010 IDSF Amateur World Standard Championships, which took place in Wetzlar, Germany on Saturday, November 27th, 2010. The videos are in German, but if you watch them enough times (like me!), then you actually start to understand most of what they’re saying!!! The first video begins […]

Dancers from the American Ballet Theatre and the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club came to the park and broke the Guinness record for most ballet dancers en pointe for a minute, with 230 dancers successfully completing a simple routine on their toes. The previous record holder was the Youth America Grand Prix 10th Anniversary last April at City […]

This is sort of a tribute to Mirko & Alessia post… For those dancers out there who have been living under a rock *wink*, Mirko & Alessia were 4-time consecutive World Ballroom Dance Champions, from 2005 to 2008, when they both retired. They have both since returned to dancing, albeit separately. Interesting aside: Mirko Gozzoli is currently dancing […]
