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 […]

I posted some ideas and research not too long ago about how to create a┬áDance 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 […]

What if I could have my own dance studio apartment? I’ve had this idea before – but last night I had a very vivid dream that kick-started my imagination again. I started by doing google searches for apartments with sprung floors, with very little luck – the only one I found was an expensive hotel […]

I was reading some dance forums today, and I happened upon a thread about the (un)importance of the arts. I couldn’t disagree more with those posters commenting that math and science and practical learning are more important than cultivation of the arts and creativity, and luckily I’m not the only one (towards the latter half […]

The opportunity of adversity

April 23rd, 2010

This is one of the best TED talks I’ve ever seen! I think it’s really worth the watch. The thesaurus might equate “disabled” with synonyms like “useless” and “mutilated,” but ground-breaking runner Aimee Mullins is out to redefine the word. Defying these associations, she hows how adversity — in her case, being born without shinbones […]

Here are Arunas Bizokas & Katusha Demidova performing a Waltz at the World Super Stars Dance Festival in Japan, 2008… I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! ^__^

This past month…

April 16th, 2010

During the time when I should probably have been blogging the most, I haven’t blogged at all! -_- What’s new… A little over a month ago, I injured my back in my sleep >_<, and had to take 2.5 weeks off from Ballroom to recover – that was miserable! What’s worse is that I took […]

A couple of weeks ago, I read this paper, which talks about Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences, as it relates to learning and teaching dance. Since reading that paper, I’ve been thinking a lot about Gardner’s theory, as it relates to my own study of dance. The first thing I realized, was that my primary […]

Dear Dance Diary

February 11th, 2010

I wrote this letter to my dance instructor Erik, but after writing it, I realized I probably should have written it to myself, like a diary! So, here goes… My first dance diary post! (Changed ever so slightly, to protect the innocent! ) Dear Dance Diary, Today my morning Ballet and Jazz classes were canceled […]
