Forever Painless Book

New Release: Forever Painless

I’ve been told that I look young for my age. I’m not sure if that’s the case or if people are just being nice to me. I do know that I feel great and am fortunate to be more active than most people my age. In addition, I do get my seven to eight hours …

No Audience, Just Cameras

While I’m busy dancing and teaching all the time, I don’t participate in performances anymore. I sometimes miss being part of those never ending recitals, but I was never interested in being a performer. My goal was always to teach dance to serious students and to have my own studio. Happily for me, I’ve accomplished …

Keeping the Doors Open

As the owner of a small business, I get the opportunity to play many roles. It should be no surprise to hear that my favorite is teaching dance classes. One of my least favorite roles is being in charge of cleaning the studio. But, as I mop the floor or help my husband clean the …

Healthy Treats

It’s that time of year again; it’s cold and dark and the holiday season is upon us. Soon many of us will be baking up a storm. Unfortunately, most baked goods don’t offer a lot in the way of healthy eating and all those treats can easily get us away from good eating habits. I …

Feeling Empowered

If you know me, you know that, physically, there’s not much to me. I may be a strong dancer, but, admittedly, I don’t have a lot of upper body strength, and I’ve never considered myself very powerful. For those reasons, I figured taking a women’s self-defense workshop might not be effective—or even be a waste …
