Shared w me by a friend and colleague. 🙏🏼
Two years ago today I was waiting in the lobby of Steps on Broadway for tap class to begin. NYC will bounce back - and when it does, my tap shoes & I will be ready. 💙🙏🏼
[03/30/20] Everybody’s all “Use this time to be inspired!!!” but I don’t feel like being inspired. What I *feel* like is taking it back to Miss Sandie’s old school barre warm-up. Dangit, these dawgs are rusty already. 😢
[03/27/20] Let’s GOOOOOOO!! 🎊🎉
When two phenomenons collide - MAGIC ✨ happens!!!
A few weeks ago, we were fortunate enough to shoot our #Fosse tribute. Here’s a look behind the scenes.
To you, overthinking and then paring down for simplicity - I see you.
To you, who spent the entirety of last week learning new skill sets unforeseen - I see you.
To you, who are worried about your students and your income and your own family - I see you.
To you, sore & beaten from teaching full-out for hours straight in a confined space, often on tile floors - I see you.
To you, second-guessing what you’re doing and what you’re capable of - I see you.
To you, working together to create exciting solutions, lifting one another, breathing together, because of a love and passion for what you do — I see you, and I am *so proud* to be among you.
What you are doing matters, even when not everyone sees or gets it, or wants to take advantage of it, or wants to pay you for it. Keep doing it - it’s making you an even better teacher than you were. I see you. 💙🙏🏼
I’ve spent the last 5 years putting all my old lesson plans into digital, for easy annual revision, access, & upkeep. But tonight I can’t access the digital, as I’ll be using the computer to film.
So, folks, we’re going old school. Tonight’s lesson is from 2012.
#olddogsnewtricks #olddogsoldtricks #gladikeptallthese
My dears, I know this is hard for you. Hang in there - I see you. 💙

Rose just did company pictures for Hotfoot, and she is AWESOME!! Reach out to her and tell her Miss A sent you!
Attention all seniors... if your prom or graduation has been canceled but you still want pictures in celebration please contact me ! I’d love to help you create something beautiful out of this heartbreak.
Another example of what live musical theater looks like right now - and this is a GOOD one!!! 🙏🏼 “All I Ask of You” (Phantom) played by the master. 💙💙💙💙
“I didn’t think I’d ever get such a response to this little tryout! Here I am in my own self-isolation. The song that came out on top was ‘All I Ask Of You’ - ALW https://t.co/NCSujNwBPd”
I posed a question to some of my actors this week — “What does live theater look like at this moment in history?” This is a nice glimpse:

So the lighting’s not so good — but the people are!! #holycityhotfoot Holy City Hotfoot
Ten years ago today, this fine fellow and I formed a pack. We both think we’re the Alpha, and we’re ok w that. Happy Gotcha Day, lil pup!! 💙💙
So 👏🏼 proud 👏🏼 of my sweet Kimberly - you continue to soar, and there are no limits to how high you can fly!! 🕊💙
SHOUT 👏🏼 OUT 👏🏼 to the greatest assistant!! Thanks, Val, for keeping me sane all weekend. Elbow bump!! 💪🏼 #wedanceunited
I need you to look at these beauties right now. They work their butts off to spread the story of tap dancing in lil ol Charleston — and then sometimes they go grab a bevvie and talk about boys, life, work, kiddos... and I 💙 them. #holycityhotfoot
It never has to be perfect - it only has to be better than the last time. If it is that, you’re doing it ALLLLLLLL RIGHT!!! Love doing that thing I do. 🙏🏼
This might be my fave. Movers moving is incredibly... moving. 💙

There are few places that lift me up like the inclusive Unified community. The dancers I saw today had so much creativity, spirit, and unbridled enthusiasm — they inspire me every day to dance with abandon. Because I truly believe we dance as a balm for the human soul.
I LOVE FAME!!! (And if you haven’t experienced it, I’m willing to bet *you’d* love it, too!!) ❤️🖤❤️
Featuring... (drumroll please)

SO excited to share dance concepts with the athletes of Special Olympics SC - finding mental acuity & emotional peace, as well as massaging the neuro-centers of balance, flexibility, & strength are VITAL for successful athletes. If you’re at N Chas Coliseum tomorrow, please come say hi!!
“Get down on their level,” they said... “Love them and hug them and hold their hands,” they said...
No more holding hands to make a nice circle. 🤷🏻♀️
“Today the role of ‘nice circle’ will be played by ‘STOP RUNNING! EVERYBODY LOOK AT MISS ANGIE! SALLIE, SNEEZE IN YOUR ELBOW. SUZIE, STOP LICKING THE MIRROR!!’”
Clearly, the best medicine in this case is wine. 🍷
