We’re heading into our final weekend of Carmen and The Little Prince this weekend, and I’m looking forward to getting back to some classical work. Today’s post features a baby picture of me dancing Satanella as a competitor in Youth America Grand Prix in celebration of this exciting announcement: I’ve been invited to attend next week’s YAGP final round and galas to review and cover as a media correspondent(!!!!!). For those of you who know me, you know this could not be a better fit, as a YAGP alumni and a hopeful future dance writer. I’ll be heading to NYC next Wednesday night to attend the final round of the competition, The Stars of Today Meet The Stars of Tomorrow gala, and the 50th birthday celebration of Julio Bocco. My bestie, B, will be joining me and helping to record and review so I can share the experience with all of you! Stay tuned!

And for now, enjoy some fun reads from around the web…
