I used to have a shoebox from an old pair of dance shoes that read “dance” on the top; on the side it stated, “is where you find it.” As a dancer, it’s the voice, it’s the output. And one thing that’s proven true over the last few weeks is that it’s portable. Hurricane Sandy[…]
Watch the vid, meet the dancers! Love!
“Weather permitting” wasn’t too dramatic of a term until this past week and a half in New York. Thanks to Hurricane Sandy the city came to a immediate stop. Luckily days before she hit, I was beyond lucky to visit Cloud City, an exhibit designed by Tomas Saraceno; this constellation installation was a reflective and funky[…]
It is the gift of that time between our birth and our death which reveals who we are, our dreams, the visions in our head we choose to create and pursue, what we share with others and how we want to be and be seen. It is a gift, an opportunity, and no one knows[…]

I have this old, long-sleeved shirt that reads “RADIO CITY” across the back, college-style from one shoulder to the other, in big white letters. It’s one of my favorite things I own. At 5 foot 10 and having grown up with the desire to one day be a Radio CIty Rockette, I wear it[…]
It’s said that if one looks in the mirror and the reflected image comes back distorted, the soul of the user is in danger of corruption; and if that mirror shatters, your cosmic penance is seven years of bad luck. Superstition aside, no one wants to be in the presence of a shattering mirror. Which[…]
It’s on Henry Street you’ll find the modern day dancers of historic Victoria West. They’ll be tucked inside St. Saviour’s Church where David Beales has recently started up Maple Leaf School of Ballet. Housing programs for toddlers (ages 2-3) to adult ballet (18+), competition prep, drop-ins, and general classes are offered to train and enjoy[…]
To a non-dancer a barre is just a barre. An extension of a wall of a studio where ballerinas flock to stretch. Warming up is crucial to anyone moving and bending for both enjoyment and/or work but why the barre? What’s up with the long sturdy accessory? Barre3 – the 3 symbolizing balance, practice and life[…]
I’m always in the mood for a Patrick Swayze moment. And seeing as Dirty Dancing just turned 25 well, it seems fitting – especially seeing as our very own EN-POINTE PORTABARRE was used in the Swayze movie One Last Dance! Check these pics out. Looks a lot like Steps on Broadway in NYC to[…]

Catch them live in color these week on Sunday atop the LIVE at Squamish music festival stage Motown isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Neither is Nickelback. But New York City’s new kids on the block promise to leave you with a newfound love for catchy keyboard beats and a man shaking his tambourine. You might even[…]
“Dancers in this day and age, are exposed to so many more types of music than ever before. Although I have a true respect for all types of music, Rock ‘N’ Roll has always pulled me in. The great musicians like Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix knew how to fill each musical bar with emotion,[…]
