Season 2018-19 Recap


The 2018-19 season has come to a close, so I took some time to revisit all of my adventures from the past several months…

I remembered the exhilaration of dancing the Snow Queen pas de deux in The Nutcracker, and flutes of Act 2 came floating back to me from when I took the stage as a Mirliton. My heart became warm as I recalled performing the Sugar Plum Fairy variation for the seniors at the assisted living facility, and I smiled at the memory of pure joy on their faces. I recalled working with the choreographer of “Flight” and being part of its debut in January as well as the Balanchine-themed “Spiral.” Both of these creations were brought to three separate stages as we popped in and out of the city this year, and each experience was uniquely special. I shivered at the flashback of February and all of the stress that accompanied those long days of overtime at the studio. Alice in Wonderland definitely kept us on our toes as we raced against time to put the entire ballet together, but the performance was worth every moment. Shortly after, we dove into The Little Mermaid where we spent over 13 hours in the theater on a show day, and the contemporary repertoire marked the successful ending of this very busy season.

I am incredibly grateful for all of the opportunities that I had, and I cannot thank everyone enough for the tremendous amount of support through it all. I especially want to thank all of my followers for joining me this year, liking my posts, and leaving such positive comments. It means so much to know that my friends, family, and readers all believe in my ability to succeed, so THANK YOU!

How was your dance season? Do you have any questions for me? Any special post requests? Happy Summer!

    1. This season was filled with lots of memorable moments, and it really was a great one. It was also one of the hardest seasons for me, physically and mentally, but it is wonderful to look back on. Thank you so much for all of your support, Kaelyn! I am so happy that you have joined me on this journey, and your comments always make me smile. 🙂 Have a fantastic summer!

                1. Yes, but I will technically be a senior in high school.
                  I am dual enrolled, so I take all of my classes at the college even though I haven’t actually graduated yet. I will have my associates degree and diploma next year though, so I am going into my sophomore year.
                  Does that make sense? I guess it’s kinda complicated… 🙂

                    1. Yep, you got it! I have to admit that it is pretty intense especially with dance. I do love it though, and I am honored to have the opportunity. 🙂 It is definitely worth it.
