dancing the night away...

so I've gone back to dancing full force. ouch. I've been taking just a technique class on mondays which is awesome. Then I got asked to participate in the WV Dance Festival piece (which I have been a part of for the past 4 years). So I was excited to get into that again a learn some choreography. And then wouldn't you know I got a solo=) yay. The music is some Cirque de Soleil and it's on pointe. People, I haven't been on pointe since August. That's six months. So now I decided to take the pointe class on fridays to get back in the groove. And tonight was my first pointe class. I went through barre with some hard Capezio's then moved to the centre with some super supple Gaynors (so I can turn) and then did rehearsal with broken in Capezio's. I got a couple of blisters....but my toes are taped up and I comfortably sore.
And then I got asked by the Charleston Ballet to come as a Guest Artist to do West Side Story in May. Why, oh why didn't all this happen when I was still in Company??? Unfortunatly, I can't make the rehearsals for that, so I won't be participating. bummer. The costumes were Uh-maz-ing.
So I'm dancing and teaching, my two loves and....waiting. still.

Speaking of 'still', I have felt the need to be very quiet the past few weeks. I'm generally a very quiet person, but this is strange. I haven't been talking to people a texting or emailing, etc. I just don't have anything to say. I feel like I should just listen. It's weird.


  1. I miss seeing you dance. let me know the dates of the festival so I can come see you. :)

  2. Hi :) I just came across this quote and I thought I would share it with you.
    "You may fear that the Lord has passed you by, but it is not so: He who counts the stars, and calls them by their names, is in no dancger of forgetting His own children. He knows your case as thoroughly as if you were the only creature He ever made, or the only saint He ever loved. Approach Him and be at peace."
    -Charles Spurgeon
    How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them!
    Ps. 139:17
    Love you!

  3.'s in april. not sure of the dates, but I'll let you know!

    Thanks Mel. I have a lot to tell you. That helped!
