I'm so excited to announce that I have been cast in the short film "For Clara" produced by Lifeline Pictures. Although I did find out a few weeks ago I wanted to wait until I had some pictures to share before I post anything about it. It is a film which centres around a young boy, Andrew, who is the recipient of a heart transplant; the heart of 16 year old Clara Matthews. He connects with Clara's family in their grieving. The film explores the different outcomes of organ transplants.
This project is a wonderful way to wrap up 2016. After breaking a metatarsal back in May I was off dancing for over 4 months. Since then I have been to physiotherapy and working hard to fully recover. I'm so happy that I am not only back to dancing but am also able to do pointe work once again! I'm lucky that I am able to share some of my passion for dance in the opening scenes of this film. We shot in the beautiful Dancemakers studio space in the Distillery District.
Check out the photos below and stay tuned for more information about the film and how you can help out!

Since September the months seem to be flying by. I'm loving the beautiful weather but I've been very busy with lots of teaching and projects (more about those later).
Today is a reminder that we always need more love and light in the world. Prejudice and fear only blind us. I am so happy to be working on Legally Blonde right now as the moral of the story could not be more appropriate: be true to yourself and don't judge others.
This week is our last few rehearsals for Innovative Arts' production of Legally Blonde. The students have been working hard and it's all shaping up to be a fun and wonderful production! For tickets check out: https://www.innovativemt.com/tickets.html
It's crazy to think that at this time last year, I was prepping to perform Legally Blonde with my Sheridan Music Theatre class. I had such a fun time in that show. I've been hit by nostalgia while working with the Innovative Arts performers. The students are bursting with energy and ready to take the stage.
On a final note: "Love is love is love is love!" And as artists we have a responsibility to share our love to the world. We must also share the stories of those who have been silenced. We must challenge and enlighten our world to create a safer place. Theatre is magical, theatre is healing, theatre is powerful.
