Greetings all!! As many of you may already know, Nutcracker Season ❄️🌸 is in full swing!! During this time especially, it is common for us to learn multiple hair styles, while preserving healthy hair. It is a common misconception that ethnic hair textures lack the potential to look polished.
Figuring out your hair texture needs, its capabilities and how to maintain it on and off the stage is quite beautiful and sacred. *I’ve attached a link, please view. You’ll see my version of a French Twist created in less than 5 mins. Show days require efficiency and attention to detail. https://youtu.be/C3mPZm0EJi0
Greetings all!! I’ve been silent for awhile. Living, processing, changing, learning and growing. This post I’ll begin with,thank you for following for all this time. And, thank you for joining me. Dance/Physical Education, wellness has been my force for so long. I’m truly blessed.
My blog focuses on the life and journey of this body/mind. Maybe, you find my writing inspirational and entertaining. Over the past 5 years, I’ve found myself in a beautiful dance, a tango between the art of dance, GYROKINESIS®, fitness and yoga. More than 3x of a decade of life has shown me, mobility of the body and mind are key!! I attend to transfer things I’ve learned and am learning on this journey. Please feel free to join me.
Greetings all! Hoping everyone who reads this is safe and well. I apologize for not writing in such a long time. But, will get back to it and soon. Please bare with me. As most should know by know, a downpour of sadness, anger, death, sickness on many levels is seeming at an ally ine high. I’ll be silently protecting by not using any social media today(Saturday) and adding in Sunday for personal reasons. Be well and take care.
A little over a week ago, a had the opportunity to perform in a first annual recital in BK. I was asked by a friend of mine to come and represent ballet/ballerinas that reflect cultural aspects of which, majority of the students reside. They are a small number in addition to the many in various locations, in need of exposure to artists that can not only teach, but show them that it is possible. And that they too can achieve whatever their goals may be! No matter what you look like, what you’ve been through or where you come from. Here’s a video from that blessing of an evening performance. The rawness of the quality and commentary: matter of fact, golden and priceless.
🌻Greetings all! As I prepare for round 2 of my day. I take a moment to ask myself why or even how do I dance?
Different days can mean different reasons, sometimes. I believe children are our future, I believe in freedom of expression. Surely, we’ve heard these things mentioned before. But, as I flip through so rarely caught studio/rehearsal shots. I ran across this one! This pic was taken some years ago, in a rehearsal. I was sick and ached all over. Had fever of 102 degrees, with a full day ahead of me. This was the dying swan solo Odette does from Swan Lake. So, I had fresh and ideal material to tap into, while preparing for my performances!! The pain, under a spell,heartache, ill feeling, Am I dying, This is one of the many reasons I dance! I can express, transform, motivate and Will myself to do and be anything I want to be! Ability to find myself, and lose myself all at once!! What a blessing!!! Thank you God!!
