This Year, We Will…

December 31, 2013

We made it!

Happy New Year!

There’s nothing quite like the start of a new year. It’s like having a clean whiteboard, a just-dusted nightstand and freshly-sharpened pencils all rolled into one to-do list just waiting to be accomplished.

The Dance Spirit staff never shies away from a challenge, and this year our New Year’s Resolutions are lofty yet doable.

My resolution is the same as it has been for the last seven years: I promise to continue working my bum off to make Dance Spirit the best magazine ever. I will continue scouring dance studios big, small, near and far in addition to the competition and convention scene, YouTube and TV for rising dance stars. Plus, I’ll spend too many hours on Twitter and Instagram stalking the big-name dancers. And then I resolve to write about all of them for you.

Here’s what the rest of the DS editors promise to accomplish in 2014…

I resolve to be less afraid of dance classes that aren’t ballet.” —Meggie Hermanson, fashion editor

“I just moved to the city, so I’m going to take full advantage of dance in NYC. That means taking more classes, seeing more performances, meeting more people and letting my inner dance-nerd shine.” —Maggie McNamara, assistant editor

“In 2014, I’m going to be as fearless and awesome as this Tiny Tapper. (Also maybe I’ll learn a little tap? For real, though?)” —Margaret Fuhrer, associate editor

VEGAS. I will go there to see Britney Spears’ new Piece of Me show. Then I’ll wait outside the stage door so we can meet and become best friends. After that, I’ll probably take my new BFF to see a few Cirque du Soleil shows.” —Rachel Zar, managing editor
