Dear New York, Happy Two Years

Arts Inspiration New York

Dear New York City, You’re something else, aren’t you? You never sleep, you’re constantly charged with energy, and you house a myriad of lives under the sparkle of your skyline. You present some of the greatest opportunities, some of the [...]

A Year and a Half in the Big Apple

Arts Inspiration New York

Last week, I hit my year and a half mark of living in NYC.  In some ways I feel like it was just yesterday that I packed up the U-Haul and made the trek with a half-sedated cat.  In others, it feels so natural that it seems like surely it’s been [...]

I know there are many posts out there created by dancers that are used in an attempt to help the world understand who we are and what we do.  They’re wonderful, really.  I support raising awareness of this beautiful art that sometimes seems to [...]

The Transition Stage

Arts Family Inspiration New York

Seven Months In

Arts Inspiration New York

I’ve been in NYC for just a little over seven months now, and sometimes I can’t believe that I actually get to live here and don’t have to leave any time soon.  I do hate to admit, however, that sometimes I take it for granted. [...]

Auditions Upon Auditions

Arts Inspiration New York

One hundred twenty-four dancers stand along the sides of three of the walls in the studio.  Chairs are placed front and center on the fourth wall that house the eyes intensely watching as six of the dancers perform the choreography they learned [...]
