Kicking Off Christmas with the Rockettes

Kicking off the Christmas season with a clip from the Radio City Rockettes! The iconic dance troupe from the Big Apple shares a tap number from their Christmas Spectacular 2016. 

May I just share the first time I saw the Christmas Spectacular in New York City, the most breathtaking experience. If you ever get the chance to go to one of their shows it is worth your time and money.


Dance Is My Lifeline

I found this great read for dance parents, former students of mine, or those know someone who takes dance classes. Dance is my lifeline.

"I remember that, as a kid, dance felt like my lifeline. Despite this, I don’t think I ever put much thought at the start into how dance might be a lifeline for my own students. I didn’t anticipate that someday my class would be the only place a student feels he belongs, or that my encouragement would be the most positive part of a student’s week, or what simply showing up could mean to a dance student experiencing uncertainty and chaos at home."

- I couldn't have said that any better myself -
