Yes I'm still here

Well, college is over and my daughter moved to New York City last year. She got a great job and nice apartment with roommates, but had to work so hard at her job to pay the outrageous rents that she barely got to dance at all.

About eight weeks ago, she invited me to come and stay in her apartment. So we are now both living here. She is beginning to dance again, but still has a heavy work schedule.

Today's advice is to Dance while you're young.

So you think you can dance Auditions Posted Season 4

The new audition dates are posted on We will try to make the Washington D.C. auditions. Maybe we'll see you there!

Yes I'm still Here

Yes, I'm still actively a dance mom. My daughter has one more semester of college left and has been travelling to NYC for dance lessons and auditions. She has been taking voice lessons and has learned a lot in the past couple of years about the audtioning process. It's so important to be there and go through the process, even if you don't land anything right away. I don't get to go to New York with her as much. But I try to go when I can. Summer is always better for travelling in NYC.

One Semester is Over

Yes, one semester is over and it has definately taken a toll on her body. Just a few short months of not training every day and I can see a huge decline. Thankfully, she is gaining it back fast over the break. My final conclusion..... dance while your body is young, study when you're older or do an even combination of both.

Dance at College

Well, the college year has started and my daughter is throwing herself into her studies. Little time to get to New York, but we'll try to get there soon. She, luckily has a very experienced ballet instructor who used to be principal in two great ballet companies and she has a new modern teacher who is giving her a great workout. Only three classes a week, she has to supplement and practice on her own a lot. Luckily, she has some great dance studios right across the street from her dorm building. So, so far she is fitting it all in.
