Don Kilhefner -- who wrote this article-- is the shaman who married Kevin and myself five years ago in an orchid and candle-filled dance studio. On a personal level, thanks to Don (and the other two in attendance), we could have not asked for a more loving and spiritual ceremony. On a global level, this mensch Don has --and continues--to bring change for the better in this world we live in. I encourage you to read Don's article to get a grasp on some important history made right here in Los Angeles. 11/06/2019

Here’s what happened when Trump was asked about his ‘favorite’ author


Our good friend Andrea Martino passed away last week. Although diminutive in stature and meek in voice, the love she always brought on was big, loud and clear. When Andrea walked into any situation, infectious joy surrounded her. She loved the Mets, Dodgers, a game of golf and anything Disney. And everything New York –she hailed from Queens. Kevin (along with other loved ones) spent time with Andrea at hospice. Although he returned home saddened, he brought along tales of humor that Andrea had imparted during her last hours –to the end a bundle of joy was she. For those of you who knew Andrea, we are having a celebration at Studio A Dance on August 24 and would love to see you there (photo attached). Also, here’s a photo of Kevin and I with Andrea at her and Joey’s wedding.

august winds

This incredible song "August Winds" is from the musical "The Last Ship" written and performed by Sting. I will not be misssing this staged musical when it comes to Los Angeles this year. I had my jazz students close their eyes during a portion of the choreography in order to take in the full breadth of the music.
