the start of – NYC – { living }

The last two weeks have been a complete whirlwind, and it’s about to escalade. Last week I traveled to NYC to find an apartment for myself and my ever so darling roommates. We had a plan, and we had been chatting with many people but just like anything: you have to get out there and…

busy { bee } + staying afloat

While my schedule proves to be JAM packed generally, lately it has become incredibly taxing on my body. When you do what you love and livelihood is involved – how can you say no? Although I do realize that taking the necessary time to recover, only leads to better execution of one’s work.     {…

How NYC .d r a w s. you. in.

This past weekend, I was able to travel to the Big Apple to perform at a major event with a dance group named Keshet. Together we stayed at the Waldorf Astoria off of Park Ave. & 49th St. If you can imagine the beauty of this place, the incredible ballroom set up with the stage…

the comfort of being h o m e

Recently I have been visiting my home due to various obligations. I cannot say that I would complain about any excuse to make it back to good old Utah. Isn’t it funny how the feeling towards your birthplace changes over time? It is the sense of security and comfort that draws me back over and…

A few thoughts on improvisation

If you know anything about me, you’d understand how much I LOVE improvisation through movement. However this wasn’t always true for me.

NYE fun ~ supporting friends & dancing all night long!

End of Year

Almost exactly a year ago, I posted my very first entry on my blog. I began writing to share. My thoughts are that sharing knowledge and our experiences are one of the most vital aspects of life.

Urban Nut happening THIS WEEKEND!

Urban Nut Whether you’re familiar with the Nutcracker or not, you’re in for a treat!

My recent training regimen

There’s nothing that makes me happier than a full-week of training. It makes me feel so fulfilled and as if I am constantly bettering myself. From workouts, ballet classes and rehearsals, I’m really starting to get back into the swing of things. Honestly it’s difficult when I am (and we all are) constantly working, although…
