I'll admit it. I had my gluteus maximus handed to me on a silver platter last weekend. I was teaching jazz dance at Berkshire Pulse in Massachusetts. Two classes on Saturday. One was an hour and a half. The second one was two hours. As a teacher, you generally are not doing the entire class [...]

I have never pushed a client so far as to sustain an injury and I have never dropped an F bomb in their presence. [...]

Here was my family weekend…3 unexpected styles of my active lifestyle! 1 – Children’s Birthday Parties – get out and play! [...]
There has been quite a bit of loss in my life this year. Death to be exact. The passing of Gary in January, a joyous dancer from my college days. The passing of my 94 year old grandmother in March.
