EDGE Dance Company 2017-2018 has officially finished. I have completed the performance requirements for the MA. All that is left to do is write my dissertation and figure out what I would like to do with the rest of my life. I am in shock that all of the rehearsing, injuries (nothing major), and touring … Continue reading Finito

With all of the sacrifices, late nights, and recent stress, I'm so fortunate to have been afforded this opportunity. But let's take a moment to talk about finding housing in London.

Pack (n): a group of things wrapped or tied together for easy handling or carrying; (v): to form into a group or compact mass. With less than 24 hours until my arrival in Europe, I am 100% packed. I have tons of toiletries, my massive amount of hair products (GO TEAM NATURAL), & my regular … Continue reading On Your Mark. Get Set. Prep!
