Travelling is fun, packing is not! My dancing takes me to LA, a lot…which is great, because there are so many opportunities for hip-hop dancers out there. I sometimes wish Manhattan held as many options for hip-hop dancers, as it does for modern or Broadway genres, but no such luck. Los Angeles is where I have to be for work…but, and this is a big but, Manhattan is where my heart is- so if travelling back and forth is what I have to do, I’ll continue doing it, forever if need be.
Did I mention, I hate packing!?! So, I get easily distracted when it comes time to pack for my trip. Today, my choice of distraction…jumping on the bed! No, I’m not 5 years old…but sometimes I may act a little younger than I actually am…maybe around 12, and I see nothing wrong with that. I had a blast jumping on the bed while listening to Daft Punk’s new album. And since my bed is already broken (I’m sure you can fill in the blanks), and the damage is already done, there’s no harm or foul.
When I finally started pulling my outfits together, I stopped for a minute to admire my fab views of this incredible city, that I’m lucky enough to live in. Not many people have 360 degree city views like mine, I’m surrounded by amazing skyscrapers and inspiring city lights. As I stare out at the beautiful lights, I think…I’m just so lucky, I’m living my dreams! In Hollywood, I have the greatest opportunities to dance and Manhattan is my heart and my home- the energy here, makes me feel alive. The city that never sleeps, but, unfortunately, I have to…it’s officially 2 AM, I’m not looking at my clock, that’s when the Empire State Building shuts it’s lights and goes to sleep. That’s my queue, I’m up too late, yet again.
