    MY DANCE PHILOSOPHY

    Are you a woman wanting to do something fun and fabulous?
    Let's dance!


    I'm creating classes that give us all a chance to dance, have fun, live a little, laugh a lot and learn along the way. In this world stress and busy-lifestyles make it hard to just let loose...let's flip the script and remind ourselves that even busy women make time to dance.

    BLACK PANTS GIRL/S and The SIZEMOLOGY MUSES Project is a movement encouraging women of all ages, all sizes and all walks of life to remember what it feels like to rekindle your inner fire or keep it burning well into the future.
    - Did you dance when you were younger? -
    - Have you always wanted to dance but you're not sure anymore because of things like age, weight, body-type or whatever? -


    BLACK PANTS GIRLS are women who remember how versatile their lives can be when the make time to dance or enjoy themselves even a little bit each week. So if you're thinking about doing something for YOU, put on some black pants (or other fine dance/workout comfortable ones), and COME BACK to the dance floor or ALLOW ME to welcome you for the first time.

    Ask TONS of questions at blackpantsgirl@gmail.com.
    See you on the dance floor!

    THE SIZEMOLOGY MUSES PROJECT

    Women Shaking the Ground -  A performing arts project for WOMEN of ALL sizes/ages.

    Rehearsals and Auditions are HELD on the following Nights:

    - Monday Nights @ 7:30 PM for Team Tap

    - Tuesday Nights @ 7:45 PM for Scheduled Auditions

    - Wednesday Nights @ 7:45 PM for Core Dancers

     

    REQUIREMENTS:

    - You must have heart. You must be a good person. You must want to inspire others.

    - You must attend rehearsals as scheduled. You must want to perform. You must be a dreamer.

    - You must have ability to commit for at least 3 months in role selected.

     

    This is about a mission much larger than ourselves. It is a volunteer position with potential for very small pay for performances. There are NO dues for solo performers and heavily discounted price classes for group dances, but you will have to work on your own costuming.

     

    A long time ago in a galaxy far far away, SIZEMOLOGY was a series of dance classes in 2009 that were all bodies, ages and levels of ability. From that, a makeshift dance group formed called the muses. Now we are becoming a real living breathing art group of Women Muses, that embody the muses of mythology for a night and aim towards inspiring others to live your dreams no matter when you begin. We perform 3 shows each year (April, August, December) at Modern Studio.

    Two days ago, my most popular dance class allowed me to tape them movin' and groovin to the incredible music of Salt n' Pepa. They are fierce, fabulous and full of heart women and I j'adore them. Add paragraph text here.WHO SAYS YOU CAN'T HAVE FUN? All the rights and love go to Salt n Pepa -...

    EXISTENTIALIST

    Existentialism is a philosophy, which sees humans, with will and consciousness and as being in a world of objects which do not have those qualities. The fact that humans are conscious of their mortality, and must make decisions about their life is what existentialism is all about.[1] Many religions and philosophies say that human life has a meaning (or a purpose). But people who believe in existentialism think that the world and human life have no meaning unless people give them meaning. This means that we find ourselves existing in the world, and then we give ourselves meaning, or 'essence'. More simply put, the 'essence' of a human, or what makes a human a 'human', is not due to nature or uncontrollable circumstances; rather, human essence is really just what we choose to make it. This means that the only nature we as humans have is the nature we make for ourselves. As a result of this, existentialists think that the actions or choices that a person makes are very important. They believe that every person has to decide for themselves what is right and wrong, and what is good and bad.
