Hello Again, Dance Spirit!

April 20, 2014

Oh hey there! I’ve missed you guys. A few months ago I left the Dance Spirit team to work on Pointe and Dance Magazine. But I just couldn’t stay away.

Our longtime fearless leader Alison Feller’s last day was Friday, and it was a bittersweet moment. Alison’s on to great things, but Friday also marked the end of a pretty amazing seven-year era.

That said, I’m thrilled to be back on the Dance Spirit staff as the magazine’s new Editor in Chief. You know me: I’m that crazy bunhead who covered the ballet beat and wayyy overshared in wayyy too many DS blog posts for a little more than half a decade.

Here’s baby me—a bunhead from the beginning!

Come say hello if you see me!

I’ve got all kinds of plans and ideas and awesomely alliterative headlines swirling around in my head, but I’d love to hear what you guys are thinking, too. What amazing dancers should we be featuring? What choreographers are you obsessed with right now? What trends can you not get enough of? (And what do you wish we would just stop talking about already?) If you have thoughts/ideas/rants you want us to hear, use our “Talk to Us” form to send them along. You might just end up seeing your fabulous idea in print.

I’m always out and about at shows and competitions. If you see me, come over and say hi! I’m looking forward to not only putting together great magazines for y’all, but also getting to know you. And I can’t wait to get started!
