    Ep. 16 - Erin Simons-Brown: Network Security Engineer in Silicon Valley

    Erin danced professionally for Colorado Ballet and Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida. When stress and pressure in the studio overpowered her love of the ballet movement, Erin knew it was time to move on. In college, despite liking English more than math throughout high school, she enjoyed her physics class most. A career-oriented mindset then steered her into electrical and computer engineering. She found work in Silicon Valley where she protects major tech companies from cybersecurity threats. Follow Erin @outdoorsbynature.

    Ep. 15 - Brett Perry - Freelance Dancer and Farmer

    Brett Perry built a freelance dance career from his adopted home base of Boise Idaho by cultivating relationships with top choreographers. With the disruption of COVID, he saw an opportunity in not being able to travel for an entire growing season.  He took his longtime involvement with Meadowlark Farm to the next level, leading the season for several crops. His vision for a deeper connection between dance and farming continues to bear fruit. Since our interview, he's been awarded a major fellowship from the Alexa Rose Foundation to fuse his two careers for the benefit of both communities. Follow along with Brett's journey @btperry, @meadowlarkfarmidaho, and at www.alexarosefoundation.org/alexa-rose-fellow

    Ep. 14 - David Barocio - Director of Development for the Weitzenhoffer Family College of Fine arts at the University of Oklahoma

    David danced for the Eugene Ballet / Ballet Idaho Joint Venture and was a founding member of Oklahoma City Ballet under the direction of Robert Mills. When a shoulder injury ended his career as a sought-out partner, his love for the arts and the OKCB organization led him to pick up whatever administrative help the company needed. He quickly learned to apply his no-fail performer's mentality to arts administration, and established his career in development at the University of Oklahoma.

Fan From Season One ,

Intelligent, inspiring and entertaining

Whether you’re 28, 58 or 88, dancer or non-dancer, Count 9 consistently serves up gems of insight related to life transitions. The podcast we all need to point us toward tomorrow. Goodly keeps conversations lively and on-point, with equal parts intellect and exuberance. Cannot wait to read your book!

What a great show!

I was so moved by Episode 2, I just donated to Reggie’s campaign! This is exactly the kind of content we need right now, for dancers and non dancers alike.

shaungggggg ,

Relatable and motivating!

Even though I am not in a creative field, there were many parts that are relatable and motivating for my life. I can’t wait to watch the next one!
