Happy International Dance Day!
The love of dance has always been within me, I’m not sure where it came from - no one in my family ever danced or wanted to dance...I just felt it bubbling up in my soul.
I love to move artistically, push physical boundaries, and create beauty in motion - to me riding horses is even a form of dance.
Dance has challenged me and brought comfort, artistic expression, discipline, balance, and strength I sometimes didn’t know I had. Dance helped me earn scholarships to fund my college education. It has brought some of the most creative, intelligent, and dynamic people into my life whom I hold close to my heart, such as the talented friend pictured with me here, @boy_ballet.
My goal is to bring dance MORE into our communities, from classrooms to town squares to outdoor theaters! I strive to help make dance accessible to ALL who want to experience and enjoy artistic movement in their life. .

Join us tonight at Mattie Kelly Arts center at 7:30pm for our final performance of Dance Facets 2018!
Come support these hardworking dance students and the performing arts in our community! So thankful to be dancing with these peeps and rehabbing my way into better ballerina shape!
I’ve included a few fun and sometimes crazy BTS shots of our rehearsals over the last few months. Lots of blood, sweat, and tiaras. Had such a BLAST with this crew!!! 💕

April 24th: the day we said yes to forever together. So thankful to have this loyal and loving man as my partner to sail through the wild and wonderful adventures of life. He is my everything.
Lyrics from one of our favorite songs:
Sometimes I believe in fate,
But the chances we create,
Always seem to ring more true.
You took a chance on loving me,
I took a chance on loving you.

Happy Birthday to @rosebarile, a prima ballerina in a league of her own. She was my first ballet teacher and the most beautiful, charismatic, and technically perfect dancer I have ever watched perform. Barre none! She inspired my passion for ballet and was such a positive influence and role model in my life from my early years to now.

It is a privilege to have her as a mentor, master teacher, and friend to this day. Thank you, Rose, for endlessly sharing your talent, wisdom, and SPARKLE with so many! The most beautiful Rose of all. 🖤

Positive thoughts and TRUTH for your week.

Community outreach yesterday! We shared the art of dance with a fun performance for our local Boys and Girls Club, who were the cutest, most expressive little audience members. 💕 After the show, we saw most of the kids dancing and twirling together with such freedom and joy. Let’s the keep the arts alive and continue inspiring our future young artists!
Feel so lucky to dance with these amazing individuals and be part of an organization that generously shares the love of performing arts in our community. Excited for our upcoming shows April 27th and 28th at Mattie Kelly Arts Center!

On the blog: a fun table setting and original ideas for filling your teen’s Easter basket! Had my best two stylists chime in on ideas. One of our favorite spots to shop is @seasidecabana. Link in profile.

One of my favorite parts of parenthood is watching our kids pursue their individual passions, which are each so different. It’s a big weekend for 3 of them: our guitarist and ballerina in training are both performing (at different venues), and our track star ⭐️@blair_how is headed back from her team’s out of town meet. Love seeing them watch and support each other’s performances and competitions.
Especially thankful to the committed teachers and coaches who share their talents every day to train, mentor, and inspire our kids in the pursuit of their dreams. 💕
