In 2013, We Resolve To…

December 31, 2012

Happy New Year!

Just thinking about a new year and a fresh start gets me all giddy. I love making lists and plans and setting goals. Type-A much? Absolutely.

My dance-y New Year’s Resolution for 2013 is to memorize all the words to and the choreography from Center Stage.

No, just kidding. I accomplished that in 2001.

Mine is simple: In 2013, I resolve to continue making Dance Spirit the best darn dance publication out there. I pour my heart, soul and paper cuts into this magazine every hour of every day, and I promise to go above and beyond in the new year to make sure each issue is our latest “best one yet.”

Fortunately, the rest of the Dance Spirit team is just as driven, motivated and goal-oriented as I am, so they had no problem coming up with enthusiastic New Year’s Resolutions of their own.

“I’m going to take up Zumba! I only took one class in 2012, but I’m hoping 2013 will be the year of Zumba (and killer abs).” —Rachel Zar, managing editor

“I resolve to dust off the ol’ pointe shoes—even if I only wear them around my apartment. Baby steps!” —Margaret Fuhrer, associate editor

“My New Year’s Resolution is to branch out and see more ballet, tap and modern performances.” —Michael Anne Bailey, assistant/fashion editor 

Go get ’em, team!

What are you resolving to conquer in 2013?
