HOME | Where Millennials are starting to Roam

 Home.

His/Herstory has shown, The United States of America has mostly been comprised of immigrants -- a "newfound land" that welcomed foreigners seeking religious/spiritual freedom, political asylum, economic pursuits, and opportunity and a place that one could make their future brighter.

From the early 1900s on -- immigrants would come for a short stint of time to work a "respectable job" or go to school, sending back hope and money to their families in their homeland. However, as the 2K Millenium approached, citizens began to make this their new home coming to stay for a good while and living out The American Dream.

But as it is said, "The Grass isn't Always Greener" and what many both foreigners and American soil born and raised citizens began to discover was that there was a conflict of interest in the lifestyle -- the history and how it relates to the whole of the person, today. Was the information true? Relevant? How could we all identify as a united front when race, culture, and tradition were all so different one from another? These questions have led to Milennial Kids shifting the course of their life to reflect their personal beliefs, experiences, interests, and connection to identity more so than fulfilling the wishes, hopes, dreams and expectations of others (including the families....*GASP*).

Yes, it's true.

Brandon doesn't want to become a doctor. 

Ashley won't be the next Michelle Obama. 

Nor, will your monthly contributions to Damiens college fund actually go...towards college.

Millennials are trading in large debt pitfalls like elaborate weddings, houses, and daycare bills for a life of Financial Freedom where they can travel twice a year and uncover their roots in Africa or tour Asia.

And guess what...that's okay. Wouldn't you rather a world full of color, optimism, joy, and excitement -- informed, culture enriched young professionals or disgruntled, anxious, frustrated, college-educated 9-5ers who live for a happy house and the weekends nightlife?

Home, it should be a place where the heart is. So if abroad to open up your sensibilities is where the heart is calling then... I say, follow it.

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.

What is Black Girl Magic?

The Makers arise early this morning to receive a local news reporter in Alberquerque KQRE Channel 13 doing a feature story on the Keshet Center for the Arts. I had the privilege of leading the dancers in a GYROKINESISⓇ seated class. It turned out to be just what we all needed to prepare our minds and bodies for a day of finalizing material and preparing for this evening's tech run. I took more time on my knees to acknowledge Most High and restore my spiritual and mental welfare.  I'm learning the ins and outs of social media marketing--balancing it out with my pursuits in academia, business planning, outreach, work life all while planning a vacation. WHEW! Talk about being a real Woman with real things going on: All At Once.
