it's still Chocolate City: Local Adventure to the Gallery





Although Travel--for me is a way of LIFE. Every day can be made an adventure if You Make it. Just know that there is something to learn and grow from through each of life's experiences...it's Amazing. It's us who has just got to show up and LIVE It. A walk around the neighborhood, a trip to the Mail Box, or nearby Corner Store or just stepping foot outside of your 4 WALLS to STRETCH can feel Humane. ((Quarantine Blues))

The Weather in DC is beginning to change. Flowers are in Bloom--Cherry Blossoms. The Air is Sweeter, Warmer. And with the successful return of Black Business in the Anacostia neighborhood area Saturday, March 20, 2021, I stepped outside my home to support the movement. Black Excellence is making its mark in our Community with exceptional Artists, Storytellers, and Historians who are dedicated to their craft like William Lee.

I just want to make sure that every time I take a photo of someone that I do them justice and capture who they really are. I love simplicity because when we make things complex that’s usually when we make things confusing. I live by the mantra that “real life is simple.”

Awards don’t thrill me, achievements don’t move me, and accolades don’t make my head any bigger than it already is. I just want people to get as close a glimpse of what I see through my lens and enjoy what they see. 


Afterward, I indulged myself in some Nubian Goddesses Healing Vibez. This Store was a Welcome Home for Queens. A GEM. The Artwork, Philanthropic Efforts, Decorum. And Black Girl Magic--was There. Thank You.

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. D Chenzira Davis Kahina & Ms. Charlita Charlita Schuster,  great friends discussing a paining in the UVI Cultural Center After my last gig as a Broadway Dancer, there was nothing more for me in the Windy City. I'd returned home with question in my mind and heart as to how I would move forward. I was diagnoses with a rare chronic pain condition, Trigeminal Neuralgia. The International Association for Blacks in Dance had just revamped its organization, was g
