The best thing we can test on is ourselves…

One of a dancer’s most prominent features is their skin, so–as low-maintenance as we are as people–it still behooves us a little bit to do something about this particular feature so that we don’t frighten people away.  Unintentionally.  Ahem.

I recently happened across a new face scrub, Aveeno Smart Essentials Daily Detoxifying Scrub–OMG!  It’s awesome!  It’s super gentle and in just one day of using it, my skin already looks much improved and feels very smooth and (giggling at an inside joke as I type this) supple.  You can check it out here, if you like: *

I also really like Dove body wash for the rest of my skin: *

AND, of course…HYDRATE!!!

Let the Mayhem begin

Our first event of the Fall is upon us.

We ended up going in a completely different direction for our second number…A little naughty, but not too bad.

We’re going to roll into Midland probably around 4 or so, to make sure we know where we need to be and see what we can see…the plan is to drive home after the show, so we should be home by midnight-ish.

We had our first professional photo shoot a couple of weeks ago, so keep your eyes peeled for new photos which are currently being studied and edited.




We did not attend Carnival Mayhem, due to unforeseeable circumstances–all is well though and everyone is fine!

Rolling in on a burning…

So, I’m sitting here on a Friday afternoon…the sky is growing ominous as a storm approaches.

The power of the wind reminds me of the scene from “Wizard of Oz” where Dorothy is trying to make her way to the fruit cellar underground…I had a similar experience, only I was trying to get into my office. Fruit cellar, office? Same thing some days…oh, snap!

I’m thinking about Carnival Mayhem and how we know so very little about the event, only that we are performing two numbers: our beloved “Heavy” and a new one called simply “Meddle”. And this event is in Midland.

I–we–don’t know what to expect. So, it should be interesting.

On another note, we are getting psyched about October…three weekends are completely taken up!

…soon we shall have more news on a magickal, mystery weekend in December…so please stay tuned for that. 🙂

Meddle is giving us some trouble, because it’s a style of music that we really have not worked with before. Challenge? Indeed. I know we can do it. Challenge accepted.

Where was I going with this…oh, just some semi-recent photos (about a month old) that were taken by a Miss Annie Hoff at Friday Night Live on July 29th.
