  • Apex Family Dance Revival
    After a bit of a break in 2018 with just a couple dances, we are bringing the Apex Family Dance. We will do a dance every other month through the spring and summer and return to monthly dance in September. It has been so nice to hear that our family dance friends have been asking for the dance to come back more often! I've missed it too. We kicked off 2019 with a great dance in January. We hope to see you at the next one on March 29, 2019.

  • Shifting Gears

    Apparently it's been a while since I updated my announcements on this page! With the addition of a second baby girl in 2017, life has been beautifully full. I've changed careers to doing birth doula work and teaching childbirth education. And I'm taking a big step back from dance calling for the foreseeable future. I've called dances for nearly 10 years and have loved just about every minute of it. I've learned so much and know that there is much more to learn. I believe I'll get back into at some point, but for now, I hope to see you on the dance floor where I'll just be another happy dancer. Wishing you the best!

  • Closing Out 2016
    Well, it's been quite a year! Life and work have been full and there are lots of changes ahead. First of all, I resigned from my role as Support Group Coordinator at Compass Center after 4 years in the job. I'll be staying on as a very part-time database manager (something I've been doing all along) and will be able to do that work from home. In the meantime, I started my own business! Through Sprout and Bean I'll be focusing on my doula work and I am working on becoming a HypnoBabies instructor. 

    I'm still calling and participating in dance as much as I can, which is not much compared to pre-kid days. Here is what I have coming up:

    Friday, November 18th - Apex Family Dance
    Friday, December 16th - Apex Family Dance
    Sunday, December 18th - Triangle Callers' Collective Dance

    I'm looking forward to a new year and all the new things that will be coming into my life. I hope to see you out in the world!
