Greetings dancers and friends! I have some exciting news to share. I've been sitting on this for a while. I will be going to Las Vegas to perform at the Mega Massive in Jillina Carlano's BDEx production of Alice in Wonderland this March! This has been a dream of mine and am thrilled it's finally happening! In order to prepare for the show, I am curtailing the class schedule for February and March.
