After 12 years of dancing flamenco, I have officially hung up my flamenco shoes and “retired.” I began this form of dance through my ballet studio (I took ballet for 10 years). Dance has always been a part of my life since my mom was a ballet dancer when she was young. It’s in my genes and it’s definitely in my blood. So it’s a little bit strange knowing I don’t have any dance class to go to every Monday and Wednesday. No shows on the weekends. It’s bittersweet.

All my life I have loved Irish hardshoe dancing and actually bought my own pair to teach myself using Olive Hurley’s DVD program. Perhaps this is the new dance form I’ll start next! Who know? All I know is change is good and new beginnings are fantastic.
