I ❤ Lindy Hop!

Giddy me with Norma Miller & Dawn Hampton
at the Savoy King film tribute

The postcard doesn't lie...
What can I say?! Hanging out with these legendary women of swing, entertainment & life, Norma Miller & Dawn Hampton...

Then assisting the Queen of Swing herself, Norma Miller, in her 2nd Annual NYC Master Class! I even got a compliment on my "beautiful" dancing from Ms. Miller & that doesn't happen often. She is an old school pro, won't let you get away with anything- just the way it should be!

Much respect to all the entertainers & artists that came before us. ❤ j :)

August Adventures

One of my favorite events all year- LA Tap Festival! This was the 10th anniversary.
Here's my lindy hop class with one of my best students, Tosh. Such a talented kid.
For most this was their 1st class ever or since the last festival. I wish I could keep them year-round! :)



After first being swept away in 2007, then taking over 2 years of serious study & dedication getting all my pre-reqs done & the reason I became a yoga instructor, Thai Yoga practitioner & handstand addict... AcroYoga Teacher Training was completed in a 2 1/2 week retreat in Ojai, CA. I'll have to write a more complete post to chronicle this life changing event. But you can enjoy some moments here:



Also an excellent debut with the Jersey Tap Festival... Full lindy hop class with more wonderful tap dancers & a special performance with cameos by founder Hillary-Marie Michael & the one & only Michelle Dorrance! So honored. Video to come...

Faculty Assistant at Kripalu

Just returned from an amazing 6 day, 5 night retreat assisting Restorative Yoga guru, Jillian Pransky, at the beautiful Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health! So many positive words to describe this experience- inspiring, sharing, trusting, healing, breathing, grounding, opening, releasing, supporting, listening, laughing, living... The list goes on & on. I am so grateful to have people like Jillian & these rewarding opportunities in my life.

Some of the finest tap dancers in the world, the music of Charlie Parker with a killin' live band, plus the awesome staff & crew at the Joyce... Life is good here.
