"Our arms start from the back because they were once wings." -Martha Graham
I've had the great pleasure of watching many of Bay Area Houston Ballet & Theatre's company dancers grow from a young age. As Feijoo Ballet School (the studio I am employed at as a Tap and Theatre Dance Instructor) shares the same space with BAHBT I often have the opportunity getting to watch the dancers rehearse. This month they had their performance of the classic ballet Swan Lake. I was able to capture some special moments both in the rehearsal process as well as during their first dress rehearsal on stage.

I have the fortune of living near my two nieces that live here in Houston but my five other nieces and nephews live off in Arizona and I only get to see them about once a year. Recently the Arizona nieces and nephews came to town and getting some cousins portraits in was a must!
Since moving back to Houston I've found a home at Feijoo Ballet School teaching tap and theatre dance. Along with my regular classes, I have also kicked off a new performance series for the studio with our first production being this last month- Black Box on Broadway! We transformed their big studio into a Black Box theatre space with the help of some lighting installation, flat set pieces, fabulous costumes, and the splashy red show curtain.
