Music…

Music… The mood booster that always ends your day on a good ‘note’…. The influence of your highly off-pitch voice screaming lyrics into your imaginary microphone. You think you are having a great time until you realize all of the windows of your house are open and all of your neighbors can hear you *cough*. ANYWAY, I wanted to dedicate this post to all of those music lovers out there who are always searching for new songs… Enjoy!

Safe Haven (Hillary Scott)

Dear No One (Tori Kelly)

Poetry (Wrabel)

At My Best (Machine Gun Kelly)

Beautiful Like You (Lee DeWyze)

*Shout out to the autumn daydreamer for being the inspiration for this post!

International Dance Day!

Snow Queen

Happy International Dance Day!!!

I am so fortunate, blessed, and incredibly honored to be able to say that I am a dancer. This art form has changed my life, and the experiences that I have had will be treasured in my heart forever. Although it can be very harsh at times, there is nothing that I love doing more than dancing. It is my passion. It is my dream. To be honest, I am not sure how far it will take me, but I know that God has a reason for leading me where I am today. I couldn’t be more thankful, and I am excited to continue my journey through the world of dance!

*I recently discovered this group contemporary piece online, and I have been looking forward to sharing it with all of you. I really enjoyed watching this, and I hope that you all do as well! HAPPY INTERNATIONAL DANCE DAY (once again)!

I missed it!

flowers

“The spring came suddenly, bursting upon the world as a child bursts into a room, with a laugh and a shout and hands full of flowers.”

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I realize that the first day of Spring was yesterday, but it is never too late to share the adoration and happiness of this beautiful time of year. As the flowers transform the world into an array of color, never walk past a single petal without recognizing how fortunate you are to witness such a magnificent gift from God.

Wishing you all a beautiful Spring. 🙂

Hour Lives

Time.

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)!

Balancing Life

walkingdowntown

Wow, I apologize for my lack of activity on WordPress this past week! Unfortunately, I haven’t had the opportunity to read your posts or write my own lately. Not only that, I had to read and write so much for school that I temporarily lost all motivation inspiration to blog; however, I am back now! I should be able to “balance” my schedule a little better after working a full weekend, and I hope to be super active next week to keep you all updated on the pre – performance posts (as usual). I have no doubt that I will have a lot to say and rant about as the weekend looms closer. I hope that you all are doing well. Happy Saturday! 🙂

*Also, good luck to all of my friends competing this weekend! After all of the hard work, I have no doubt that you are going to shine under those lights. I am super excited to hear the results, and I will keep you in my prayers.
