Hour Lives



At one moment, you seem to be racing against it. At another, the seconds pound in your ears it drags you along. In the end, it always manages to flash before your eyes.

As the clock ticks on, we are merely “going through the motions” everyday. Our schedules mash together into one big blueprint of life, and we speed though the days without putting much thought into our actions. Seconds turn into minutes, minutes turn into hours, hours turn into days, days turn into months, and months turn into years, and all that is left is pure memories…

I am so thankful to have been given the opportunity to choreograph this group contemporary-ballet piece about Hour Lives, and I am looking forward to the first rehearsal with my dancers on Monday.

It is going to be extra special to see time come alive on the stage in May… Wish me luck as I dive head first into the world of choreography (this is a first)!

I am a seventeen year old professional trainee ballet dancer who is currently pursuing a marketing degree at the local college as a dual enrolled student. Outside of dance and school, I really enjoy writing, archery, traveling, music, photography, as well as spending time with friends and family. My blog is about as random as it can possibly get, so I hope that you stop by and find something that interests you!

    1. Thanks, grandma! This is definitely a learning curve, because setting an abstract piece on many dancers is a whole lot harder than I thought it would be. I am so fortunate to have this incredible opportunity, and I am very excited to show you this dance. I love you so much!!! 🙂
