Time for Take Offffff. See you in Dayton!!!

I saw a great price for a flight  using my Hopper APP over the holiday season. I could've kick myself for not jumping on it right away! But that's the great thing about Hopper, it does the jumping for You!

$150.00 for a roundtrip ticket from Washington DC to Dayton, Ohio.
Unbeatable price.
It's all good, though because I can always count on the daily notifications to tell me when the prices have either gone UP or DOWN. It's Sweet. My little trusty that I keep on hand whenever I'm ready to jet to new lands!

In just 2 days for now, you can join me along the journey this year to the International Association for Blacks in Dance Conference  which is being hosted by Dayton Contemporary Dance Company among many other prominent dance Artists, Leaders Performers, Scholars and Advocates. The conference takes place at the Dayton Ohio Convention Center and I'll be staying at Dayton's University Marriott.

This is will be first time attending the festival as well as my first time visiting Dayton Ohio.
The conference is held every year in various locations, and it is where the Dance Our Legacy Scholarship Awardees will traveling to around this time next year in 2020 for an all day dance experience--one that will be memorable and indelible upon their journey as aspiring dancers.

As a Scholar and Mentor, I look forward to this venture. A reunion, it is a chance to see old faces and meet new ones to connected with dance Giants, Historians, Influencers, Celebrities and Leaders who will inform us Next Generation of Leaders on how we can offer what is needed, challenge what has and is already being done in the industry and expand with the resources that we now have access to.

Yes, Work, Get Your LIFE. Street/Dance Workshop Jacob's Pillow 2020 NYC

My Life at the Pillow..." ~by JR Glover Today was a Pillow Day. As an Alumni, I traveled North to help facilitate and support the Recruitment Tour amidst other beautiful dancing bodies. It's amazing to see how we have all grown through the years as Dancers, Creatives, Choreographers, Directors and lifelong students. Even more, it's inspiring to know that we are all keeping at it--pursuing Excellence and honing our craft day by day. What was meant to be a standby experience turned out to be a Full Dance Day for me. I give thanks to my peers who encouraged me to dance. It was a risk--knowing that I had not danced or taken a technique class proper in several months. However, due to the nature of GYROKINESIS as an instructor, I never lost body awareness, posture, alignment etc. So it was just a matter of tipping over the edge again to see where my body goes....and catching it again. It was a necessary challenge in fact, with the chronic pain of Trigeminal Neuralgia and C

Keeping Dance Alive, St. Croix Arts Community Outreach

 In 2017, I was at home in Washington DC bedridden and removed from everything that I knew.  My life as a Dancer as I knew it....was no longer. I could barely walk, performing menial tasks around the house was a burden for me. I often felt faint and dizzy. My nervous system had taken a hard hit from the brutal cold winter of Chicago. The winds  shook my bones and my days of job hunting, street performing in the Chicago O'Hare Airport for bills and just aimlessly walking in the snow drove my body into a state of shock. PH.

Remote Work Saves the Day!

  People tend not to understand. Being an Artist means that you get no days off. It’s a 24/7 kind of job whether a Creative Commissioning Artist, a Teacher, Administrator, Advocate or Affiliate there is no way to clock in and clock out of Inspiration. It just hits you and you have to be ready. That’s why it ’ s helpful to just check out of life and into a hotel at times. Not to vacation, but to get a good night's rest, wake up and actually get things done. Maya Angelou, Pulitzer Prize Writer said that she couldn’t write in her home because she was surrounded by too beautiful of things. I get it. There are layers to inspiration in if you’re not in the right setting it can mess with your mental space too.
