DELTA. & the Future is Female

Trust me Friends.

Who you choose to give your business to for travel makes all the difference.

It was my first time flying Delta First Class--my travel partner Krystal managed to hook me when she showed me how the airlines was going to great lengths to create space between passengers on flight. The middle seats were completely blocked off and even better we were in-flight with some of the best Customer Service I've had yet. The attentiveness, sincerity and kind tone in flight attendants voice makes one enjoy and relax. Read more about it here: What Delta does...




On the way there we sat in front of a newly wedded couple. They could've been headed to St. John, one out of the 3 islands in the U.S. Virgin Islands that was known as the "the love location" for its scenic view, lushes waters and array of resort hotels built on the land. 

The flight was smooth, from an early morning departure in Baltimore--a quick leg in Atlanta and then touching down in St. John. There's a first time for everything. I managed to change my outfit in the bathroom stall into some Khaki Bermuda shorts and a top. There is a hook and drop down table inside for our comfort and use that I was pleasantly surprised by. Go Delta!

We took care of our COVID-19 testing within 3-days of travel and chose the Airbnb route for our stay. Away from the crowds of people flocking to resorts. It' s always nice to get a sense of the land by staying amongst the locals, I find.  Having the Delta app downloaded on my phone was another win. Being able to receive updates in real-time, reminders and simply just being able to have your boarding pass in-hand makes for a smooth check-in process. *Here is a trick* when scanning your boarding pass on a mobile device. Make sure that your screen's resolution is on HIGH/Bright so that it'll go through.


Good Vibes. I would definitely fly with Delta again. 





Just last year I learned that they ad aviation program for Young Women called WING and became in enthralled. Even more, DELTA made history  by appointing the first Black Female Pilot to the Georgia Air National Guard: Read More

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

Day #3 L'Acado Dance Workshop - A Traveling Black Woman

No Yoga for me this Morning. Instead, I was eagerly anticipating L'Antoinette Stiles company class and workshop featuring her specialized technique: L'anTech being held at the National Performing Arts Building as part of the University of Trinidad & Tabago. I first encountered this woman as gazed at a piece of fruit to eat one early morning in Dayton, Ohio at the International Association of Blacks in Dance Association Annual Conference in Festival 2019. Typical gypsy scenario, coming from long travels in need of nourishment after thing is all said and done. She bit into an apple that rested on a table beside me, she picked it up--looked at me it that was the beginning of my admiration for a such a this deeply rich cultured person. Company Dancers showing their special finger grip Her company brought Kingston to the stage for in the U.S. with only a taste of Caribbean culture through Katherine Dunham, deemed the mother of Modern dance who brought the classic style a

The Streets of the Caribbean, A Traveling Black Woman

“Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” -  Ibn Battuta . Trinidad & Tobago really out did themselves with the Design and Set-up of Carifesta XIVp particularly at the Grand Stand in Queens Park. Whether you were entering through the side gates as personnel and staff or to meander through the welcome gate...there was a scenic route and display of color and culture all around. When you first enter in, you are greeted by mock flight attendants in side of the cabin of a plane, upon exiting the archway is there for picture taking with avenue signs name after the representing countries and islands. There is a vintage cobblestone Victorian town accompanied by colorful Cuban style houses with movie scene revolving lights--really making for the fun and magic of this reunion. There was much to see, do, taste and experience. The marketplace carried dishes from Haiti, Guyana, Guadelope and more, taking locals on a sensory trip off shores and pulling
