And we danced…

One of my new year’s resolutions (I make several) was to get my ass back on a stage this year. I grew up dancing, but I hadn’t performed in 6 years. My roommate, Tamara is a co-founder of The Moving Collective, which is a collection of choreographers that get together, stage pieces, and hold performances twice a year. She’s been trying to get me to join for a while now and this year I decided was the time to get after it. 
It’s nearly impossible for me to commit to a dancer’s rehearsal schedule with my busy travel schedule, but she decided to set a piece for just the two of us and we were able to rehearse whenever we could fit it in. Tamara and I met and danced together at our performing arts high school, (yes, like Fame) and it’s been 11 years since we last shared a stage. 
Even though I was only able to be in this one piece,
 it felt so good to be on stage again 
AND even better to be sharing that stage with T. 
Here are some photos of us in her piece.

Do you have a passion that you haven’t connected with in a while? 
It’s hard to get back in the habit, but once you do it’s feels like coming home. 
I recommend it.

  1. Congrats to you! YOu both have beautiful lines! So talented!

  2. Oh Ami! It’s so great that you made the time to do this for yourself, especially since you are crazy busy all the time! You’re my inspiration for the day… if Ami can make time to dance on stage again, then I can make time to work on the damn book!
