The vibe at the studio the past couple of weeks have been fueled with excited energy. Getting dressed up in costume, PLUS doing hair and makeup for picture day and dress rehearsal has gotten everyone pumped up for the upcoming ICON IV Show. All the choreography is done and now we’ve had the opportunity to see the awesome costumes that go along with the awesome choreography! In addition to some great costumes from great catalogs, GEO and Beth gave us creative license to put together some of our own costumes. Now that was an INCREDIBLE adventure! With the guidance, encouragement and support of GEO and Beth along with Angel’s artistic ability and eye to sketch everything out for us, we all had a ball assembling and accessorizing some really cool costumes. What fun to be part of that creative process! Who knows, in addition to being responsible for nurturing extreme dance talent, GEO and Beth may be credited for discovering fashion designers within their studio walls. Thank you GEO, Beth and all of ICON staff for always encouraging a creative process and showing us to think outside the box!

The story took a Bonjovi angle due to my last name and was called Blaze of Glory, which I loved. (Hello, he's from NJ!) It also was the first time that everyone found out I was starring in this summers hot flick, The Next Airbender. My peers applauded my modesty about not boasting about the opportunity and it was a pleasure for the article to bring it about in such a great way. My parents were super proud.
Check out the article here. You can sign up to receive gendance at www.gendance.com. I love this next gen vibe and I think you will too. Geo was an Ambassador and he even has HIS own gendance page. Take a look here.
Here's mine and thank you again ICON Dance Complex, for naming ME ICON of the Year and for giving me the opportunities presented on a daily basis... sometimes hourly! You guys are amazing!
