I’ve been nominated for something…

Never expected THAT to happen!

In real life, I’ve been very sick. As a result, I’ve been doing more taking meds and sleeping than being on SL.

I was very surprised to finally get to log on today and learn that I’ve been nominated for a DANCE QUEENS Dance Awards (The Cutie) for Best Script (for Shaken Into Peace) and SL Show of the Year (for Shaken Into Peace).

Was TOO stoked to learn this. Shaken into Peace was a definite labor of love, and it was created as much to fuel my heart with God as it was to help fuel others’ hearts with God. Glad I pushed myself away from my fear and finished this project!

The awards ceremony is at 6 am SLT, January 27, 2013, at LunaMar. I always chuckle when nominees say it was awesome just to be nominated, but I have to say it’s true. Just to be nominated, something I never considered happening, is a WOWING moment for me. It sparks me to want to continue doing good work.

Latest SLE Feature – I Talk with Ballet Pixelle’s Inarra Saarinen

Hi there, party peoples!

It’s been a minute since I’ve posted. RL has been uber-tiring…seriously.

However, here I be, and I’m here to tell you about my latest feature for SL Enquirer. I was charged with talking with Inarra Saarinen, artistic director and choreographer for Ballet Pixelle. As a person who loves dance (and you know I love dance), I was eager to learn more about Saarinen’s vision, the work Ballet Pixelle has done . . . and share this info (and more) with the readers!

Unity Premieres Latest Production, SHAKEN INTO PEACE Today!

Sometimes, things are hard. Sometimes, things weigh us down. Sometimes, we don’t know which way to turn for help.

Sometimes, it’s not about turning anywhere.

It’s about being STILL . . . and finding peace.

For those that never give themselves time to BE and to FEEL and to RELEASE, you definitely do not want to miss Unity Productions’ latest show, the meditative performance, SHAKEN INTO PEACE.

Created and directed by by moi (!!!) and choreographed by the talented Unity Productions team, SHAKEN INTO PEACE’s spoken word messages and soul-stirring peace-filled music relay the production’s ultimate message: even when you’re feeling gray, there is peace and a peace maker that can restore color in your life.

Come, get your peace.

Friday, October 5, 2012 at 6 p.m. SLT
Saturday, October 6, 2012, at 2 p.m. SLT

So You Think You Can Choreograph? Latest SLE Article

Hey all! It’s been awhile since I’ve written an article for Second Life Enquirer, but what with RL dissertation and SL filming, it’s been a tiring, tiring journey. I won’t even get into all the other things I’ve been working on. So, yeah, moving on!

My latest SLE article is awesome. Yes, I’m patting self on back–HARD. I pulled together four women who are great dancers and choreographers on the grid and had them talk to me about dancing, choreographing as an art form in Second Life. The women? Dance Queens Founder Nottoo Wise, The Dazzlers CEO Pyper Dollinger, Unity Productions Founder Pet Karu, and A&M MOCAP Assistant/Support and Gorean dancer Tiviyah Resident.

Aside from their views on dancing and choreography, I also share my recent work into choreography and offer a raw video of my rehearsing a song I’m dancing this weekend.
