Dear Dancers, Artistic Athletes and Dreamers!

Please extend a very warm welcome to Shana Henning! Get to know her, she's awesome!

Fun fact: Shana was once part of a traveling basketball dunking team - called the Orland Magic Dunking Dancers. These were ballerinas who were trained to bounce on a mini tramp and dunk the basketball in dancer poses. It became such a crowd pleaser that the troupe was featured on ESPN and toured Indonesia, Singapore - throughout Asia and locally around the states. Shana's trademark move was an aerial front flip over another dancer, gaining control of the ball and throwing it against the backboard for another dancer to dunk it into the net.

Dear Dancers, Artistic Athletes and Dreamers!

The #1 question I have been asked all week... "have you recovered from the (show) weekend yet?" Let's just say I spent most of Monday walking around the studio with only 1 shoe on because I misplaced the other, I spent yesterday aimlessly walking in and out of the office wondering what I was looking for... and well today, I walked out of the house without Lola (studio pup)... batting a 1000 people ha. 

But in all honesty, the weekend was a great success! 3 sold out shows, 3 great crowds, 6 incredible pieces  choreographed by 5 incredible creatives and a team of volunteers helping it to all run smoothly. If you missed the experience of participating or the chance to support your fellow dancers, I have some crazy news... we are already planning for (our first ever) Summer show... all details will be announced on Monday :::breathes into paper bag:::
