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 […]

Anna and Giampiero, who are currently ranked #3 in the U.S.A., and just recently came in 5th in the Open Professional Standard final at Blackpool, will be coaching at SuperShag in Boston on August 13th-14th, 2010! They will be teaching private lessons all day Friday, and giving three 45-minute workshops on Saturday, from 1-4pm. Workshop […]

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 […]

The United States’ first National Dance Day, which was started by Nigel Lythgoe of SYTYCD fame as a grass roots movement, took place this past weekend, and was recognized by an official act of Congress! Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC), a long-time proponent of healthy lifestyles, introduced a National Dance Day resolution at a press conference on […]

I posted some ideas and research not too long ago about how to create a Dance Studio Apartment. I’ve recently been doing a lot more reading and research on that subject (including real-estate hunting and tax-implications), and I am hoping to be able to actually pursue that dream and create my own studio in the near […]

I made a sort of last minute decision to go compete at Manhattan, and gosh am I glad that I did! It’s late at night, and I’m exhausted, so I’ll have to save the verbose story telling for another post, but suffice to say that I feel that I learned a lot from the experience […]

Before my performance last night, Danielle Mayzes created this masterpiece atop my head…… in about 20 minutes! When I finally saw it in the mirror, I was floored! What’s more, I think she worked her wonders on two or three other dancers within about an hour! Stay tuned for more pictures (and hopefully video) yet […]
