A totally rad 80s themed pajama party was had by our The Performers Ballet & Jazz Company dancers at our theater week kickoff Christmas party tonight! Food, fun, gift exchange and an 80s-themed dance party in honor of the FIRST year of Christmas Joy, way back in 1985. We pulled costumes out of storage from decades ago and loved every minute. Plus another awesome community service project benefitting #notestoencourage (did you know part of our Company mission is to give back to our community?) A night to remember! Thanks to all the awesome volunteers who made it happen!

Developing excellence in dancers through inspired service and performance. The Performers Ballet & Jazz Company is a non-profit pre-professional dance company under Artistic Directorship of Wendy Miner.

Magnificent Mutts

Allow me to introduce myself, I’m Heidi aka Charlotte’s mom. Mother of 3 daughters 21, 18, 9 and over 20 various rescue animals. I’ve hacked into the account to talk about my newest “baby”.

Hopefully by now most of you have heard of the new “Magnificent Mutts” 2021 Calendar. When the idea came to me years ago there was no pandemic, fear of gathering, lockdown... flash forward to November when we started photographing (yes as in last month) this very lofty goal had to be stripped bare & reformatted to become reality. A special thank you to girl boss Wendy Miner for trusting a vision & process I could only see in my head and not prove on paper.

To be honest I was thrilled and terrified. It will be TOO HARD. There are TOO MANY obstacles. TOO LITTLE resources. TOO LITTLE TIME. TOO LITTLE MONEY (as in ZERO dollars - mind you this is not the traditional way of operating with the board, volunteers, committees etc) add in a friendly anxiety check, “what if you get COVID and can’t finish the project” and waste everyone’s time or worse, what if the project fails? After working myself into a tizzy, I got a friendly nudge from a familiar wet nose, Thor. My adopted deaf Labrador. That nudge jolted me out of my inner destructive monologue and reminded me of the constant joy that HE has been for us this year. COVID has been the BEST year of his life. You see, to him, his family is home, his girl is here all day to play. He hasn’t missed a zoom class, -should be paying for dance as he attends regularly, steals every tennis ball from technique, and has been the reason for OUR Joy this year. Shelter in place isn’t as lonely with a dog... but what about the dogs in the shelter? They have no voice and COVID has stopped the entire community in their tracks. However the needs for these animals has not diminished. There was an immediate shift as per usual, when I stopped focusing on myself and my needs and feelings and looked around - suddenly everything was a little clearer. Ideas began to bloom and passion took over. Find the need, meet the need.

Initially my concept was similar in many ways, but there was no need behind it. Nothing driving it. I quickly realized to pull off a product in this time frame, 9 months into a pandemic in a city that is already financially distressed, we would need to be different. My initial goals of lofty ballerinas floating effortlessly with a pup mid air... squashed, and to be honest I have never been more relieved. Our community doesn’t need 12 pages of recital pictures, perfectly pointed toes and elongated necks inclined, eyes fixed toward a balcony... (Don’t get me wrong.. when time allows I would love that photo too for different purposes) While Albuquerque is a city steeped in culture, dance is not at the forefront. I will admit, I never experienced Christmas joy until Charlotte joined. We even passed on an invitation for her to be an understudy because I had no idea what the production was about. Now that I have been assigned the title “dance mom” and I learn the ropes, it’s my personal mission to “educate others” about the amazing company that is “Christmas Joy”. A legacy of 35 years in the city of Albuquerque deserves recognition. This production would not have lasted or continued if not for the excellence in performance and the wealth of parent involvement. Imagine my dismay when I couldn’t even convince my own father to attend a show. Not because he didn’t love his granddaughter, but because he doesn’t connect... to “dance”. A seat left empty, because I couldn’t bridge that gap.

15 years as a Proffesional Makeup Artist have afforded me opportunities on film and photography sets & insight into the inner workings and intricacies of capturing “moments”. Marketing & social media have also taught me, sometimes, less is more. So how do I take this experience and create a calendar, inspire a city, in a month, with untrained rescue dogs, with COVID restrictions? Similar to how one would consume an elephant... one.. bite.. at.. a.. time.

Costumes, our digging unearthed serval good belly laughs at the expense of “fashion” over the years, however it also became very clear to me, many of these pieces crafted so beautifully have withstood not only the test of time but rigorous performances because of the quality and care invested in them year after year. I selected then shuffled them to create diversity in color scheme and size then formatted to create a respective theme for each month. Next, find dancers that FIT into those costumes. It became very real that we had more dancers than months. Lastly repeat the process but with dogs, making sure to represent as many ages, breeds and needs as possible.

I secretly hoped for a “grande finale moment” with the entire cast but the second the first paw touched the slippery paper and bright lights began to flash, it became glaringly obvious that it would be 100% unfair to expect a dog (much less an unknown rescue) to adapt to a group of strangers in a foreign place.

For the safety the dancers and sanity of the dog, it isn’t feasible. I realized if this is truly about them and for them, we must move at THEIR pace not ours. Gain their trust, and wait. I learned A LOT that first day and to all of those along for they wild ride off leash, I think we all walked away with something. To the dancers who painstakingly held poses modeling with dog treats nestled in their wardrobe, or mouth... you are rockstars. To the parents who chauffeured or steamed costumes, dog moms who waited patiently or returned to reshoot, we appreciate your time. To Jasmine covered in hair and glued to a camera with hours of editing, I salute you, and to the entire team of Magnify Dance Ensemble, I hope to someday work with each and every one of you.

HOURS of shooting. HUNDREDS OF PHOTOS ( Mosey Photography) and only room for 12. Thank you to Ash Ulmer Design for your editing and design services to our make our calendar proffessional and beautiful. To The Printer's Press thank you for your patience and additionally YOUR financial support for this project.

When thinking about marketing strategies I was reminded why I fell in love with MDE. For the dancer it’s a quality platform to perform on stage and grow as a person. Ensemble’s core values of philanthropy foster appropriate opportunities for a wide age range of kids to serve others. Lastly their Big/little program encourages kids to pour out into the next generation and inspire. The hours of rehearsals, efforts made and donations collected, are not thanks to wealthy benefactors, but the willing hands of mothers, fathers and hopeful dancers joining together to serve others.

My hope for you and your dancer is that in some way shape or form something as “simple” as a 2021 Calendar can serve as a bridge for you. You see, my own father may never attend a performance, but as a dog lover, would proudly display this calendar. My neighbor who is diabetic won’t purchase popcorn, but now has art to brighten their wall. Additionally dog lovers everywhere now have the dates of MDE’s “Christmas Joy” scheduled in their calendar as a reminder, and who knows they may be the next to fill that empty seat. It may feel like this year has “gone to the dogs” but in doing so, we are actually shining brighter than ever when our world needs it most. Untrained, unpretentious, a little smelly, but perfect in every way, these mutts arrived on the scene in a way that seems to parallel the season, if God can deliver hope in a barn, we can spread joy with 4 paws.

If you haven’t already, please visit our page with your dancer. Take a moment to enjoy some ADORABLE dogs and appreciate their talented friends & cast members. COVID robbed us of our traditional cast photo, but a page was dedicated to listing each and every member. We may not have programs from 2020 to add to memory boxes, but find comfort in knowing their name is in print, and circulating the city. Although the calendar has a shelf life, we have big plans to continue through the year with the surplus of amazing footage captured.

In closing I hope that you can find a happy tail in this story. We have been fortunate enough to receive coverage on the news regarding the project, and Watermelon Mountain Ranch in appreciation has begun promoting MDE for our efforts. My hope is that this becomes an annual calendar. I dream of cast members autographing calendars after performances for aspiring dancers, that rush home and carefully flip through each page. Or perhaps a future featured service dog attending his/her first performance. Creating in 2020 is a success in and of itself, however the concept is not proprietary. If we don’t “corner the market” and make ourselves known now, we have only created more competition in the same space. So please join me, and our ragtag team of pups and share. Let’s show Albuquerque that Joy rises, and we shine on and off the stage.
