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! I have been taking a brief break from Dancing over the past few weeks. Business matters needing their due time and attention , healing/dealing with a minor injury, and such. While on my travels this time around, I was blessed with an opportunity to teach ballet classes at a School of the Arts recently. It is always nice, to be able to travel and make a little money while out. In addition, it is also great to be able to give back in some way, towards the youth and community! Throughout my career, there has always been somehow or someway, to give back and take care of the Community through the arts. And how the struggle, to this day continues to keep the Arts alive and well, in and or involved with the educational system. Throughout my career as a dancer, there where always ways and activities that I found myself involved in that where focusing on such things as inspiration, Growth, Community, Positive change. So, as I shift into more of being my own boss and being other’s boss, I remember and give thanks! To eliminate the arts: Dance, Music, Visual Art, Theatre available to all walks of the community, would be like, Elimination of Life, itself. , I know and believe that Art is Life and Life is Art. There would not be one, with out the other. It is everywhere and in everything that we do, as Human beings.
