No matter what type of blog you have, quality, black and white, grunge, this picture belongs on all of it. This is in memory of the 27 people (18 of which are kindergartners) who lost their lives today in Newtown, Connecticut. You are forever in our hearts.
this is so heartbreaking :’(
This is so upsetting. My friend’s two cousins go to the school and one of them is in kindergarden. I am so thankful that they are safe. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the families and friends affected.
It’s almost christmas :( I’m soo sad RIP<3 :’(
no child deserves to go through this. where is the humanity? this world is becoming so sick; please pray for them and all those affected
“Hey, let’s just say in some alternate universe, there’s a couple that’s just like us. Only, she’s healthy and he’s… he’s perfect. And their world is about how much money they’re gonna spend on vacation, or who’s having a bad mood that day, or whether they feel guilty about having a cleaning lady. I don’t wanna be those people. I want us. You. This.”

Our Dance Community
It started out as a conversation, but turned into something more. Lovelyn, Sean, Mika, Jerome and I reminisced on the dance community and its evolution.. and this is what we came up with. We joked about putting it on a shirt, or starting a Wikipedia page, haha.. but it was a lot of fun. Not every team is there, and it’s definitely not perfect - some if it could only be connected from what we’ve witnessed from afar.
But as we were writing this, it became a visual reminder of who I am in the community and where I came from. Despite any disagreements I may have with the direction it’s headed, I’m proud to be a part of this community and a part of its history.
And I’m blessed to say that I’ve literally watched most of this unfold, now in my tenth year. So many dancers have no idea where their roots are grounded.. and so many teachers, choreographers, and directors are failing to pay their respect to those who paved the way. We forget that so many people and teams before us made this possible. Fact: We would not be here without those people.
Know your roots. And when I say that, I actually mean go out and do your homework. Educate yourself and educate others. It’s a privilege to share our gifts with the world.. and our community literally impacts so many people across the globe. So take pride in who you are in this community and who helped you become who you are today.
Know your roots.
