How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.
Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.

I have taken dance at Fresh Attitude Dance Studio for the past 5 years…and I love it! There are lots of different ways that I like to be creative and dance is just one… but probably one of my favorites, because I love performing, being with my friends and wearing crazy outfits!
Last weekend was our 2010 Dance Recital!!!! There were 9 hip-hop dance classes and 2 lyrical with nearly 150 students that made up our two hour show. The whole thing was SO much fun… from getting ready back stage, to performing, watching the other classes and ending each show with the grand finale!
This was the dance where we got to wear our “tye dye” t-shirt!!! I love how they all looked together on stage with bright lights!
Here, we danced to a song called “Do or Die” by the ‘Bandwithnoname’… it was a fast, upbeat song that was hard to learn but our class did a great job and we had a ton of fun performing it.
THE FINALE!!!!!! At the end of the show our entire studio came out on stage and did one final performance together! We had a blast!!! I can’t believe that the year is over… and can’t wait for next year!!!!
“I hope you never lose your sense of wonder, You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger, May you never take one single breath for granted, GOD forbid love ever leave you empty handed, I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean, Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens, Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance, And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance. I hope you dance....” (Lee Ann Womack)

I was out of the office on Monday attending a CRAVE Seattle business event which was quite lovely. I really had no idea what to expect on Monday, other than that I was going to learn some great skills to improve my business. While I did learn and was also reminded of a few key elements for success, the biggest thing I learned is that I am a successful business woman who is working it! :)
Last weekend my dance class came over to tye-dye t-shirts for our dance costumes, which will be for our dance recital in JUNE!!!!
Here is the LONG, creative process to making the most perfect, crazy tye-dyed shirts!!!!!
You start with Rubber band MANIA!!! I couldn’t BELIEVE how many rubber bands it took to make these crazy t-shirts! We found out that the thicker, stronger rubber bands worked best for this project!
Untie the rubber bands, and rinse in cold water until water runs clear.
Look at your master piece!!!! (This is my dance instructor Sharnessa Sanden! She was the first one to rinse her shirt out and it turned out SO awesome!)
Wash EACH ITEM in cold water then dry in dryer or air dry.
THE FINISHED PRUODUCT!!!! They ALL look AMAZING, and each one turned out so different!!! Good job everyone!!!! I can’t wait to see how these will all look on stage at our performance!!!
*****My mom and I had a little trouble on this project I took us 4 try’s!! So make sure to use COLD water!!! And they may not look good all rolled up, but just wait…. They will look awesome when you are all done!!!!*****
