  • New Life Means a New Life!
    I'm now 5 months into the adventure of motherhood and I'm still in awe of this little person who has taken over my life. She is just wonderful. We are all doing well. 

    Understandably, I've taken a break from much dance calling, though I've been doing our beautiful Apex Family Dance each month. I've started booking a few gigs here and there in the fall and excited to get back into the swing of things! 

    Stay tuned for more details on the coming gigs. The most recent schedule is up on the Family Dance page, so check that out and I hope to see you there! Also, my friend Shay is starting a new square dance in Pittsboro, NC that I'm really excited about. I'll be calling the first dance in that series on September, 5th!

  • Big Life Changes
    Hello friends! You may have noticed that I haven't been posting much about dance gigs, weddings, or other events recently and that has been for good reasons. 

    First, my partner Justin and I bought, renovated and moved into a house in lovely downtown Apex. We've been settled in for about a month and love our new place. Secondly, we are expecting our first baby any day now! The official "guess date" (as our doula calls it) is January 2nd, 2015, but I'm over 38 weeks along, so out little gal could arrive any time. 

    I called my last dance of the year back in November and will be taking a break to give myself time to get settled into motherhood. I'm hoping to jump back into calling local gigs and officiating weddings later in the spring and summer. I'm excited about this new adventure and so appreciate all the support I get from my friends and community.

    Wishing you a very safe, restful, and joyful holiday season.

  • Off to Pinewoods!
    After months of anticipation, I'm finally on the journey to Pinewoods for a week of teaching, learning, dancing, music, and community! I'm so grateful to be traveling with dear friends and, hopefully, making some new, wonderful friends once we arrive. I learned this week that this will be the final session of English and American Week at the camp after a long, long history of wonderful, end-of-summer joy, so we are going to make it a good one! I'll be out of reach of any cell phones or internet for a whole week. I'm looking forward to a full week of joyous, technology-free revelry!

    I'll be back in September for some Family Dances at the Halle Center! We've got a great thing happening every month in that lovely, historic dance hall. I hope to see you there on September 26th!
