    How Watching A Live Performance Can Help You Achieve Your Heart's Desire

    How Watching A Live Performance Can Help You Achieve Your Heart's Desire

    I have attended many live performances in the last few years thanks to podcasting. Not only am I entertained and moved, but I glean many lessons that apply to dance, life and business. The following thoughts are a summary of my experiences at various productions from the last few months. With all of the fantastic and not so fantastic experiences that have gone in my life these past months, I didn\'t realize how much time had passed with some of these experiences. Nonetheless, these 16 perspectives from watching a live performance can help you achieve your heart\'s desire. : )

    Once you\'ve made a decision, act quickly.

    Are you tribute worthy? Did you make your day tribute worthy? How could you end the day excellently?

    Let your work speak for itself. How does it make you feel? To know in your heart that you will do what you say you\'re going to do to the best of your ability does amazing things for your self-confidence.

    What is your preparation time like? Not always about quantity but also quality.

    Can you highlight someone else in your work besides yourself? Do you have a generous spirit? Being a generous person is more than just about money. Everybody can make someone else feel better. It isn\'t always about what you say but how you make them feel.

    Create a life that is important to you.

    Always be looking to add value. Can you implement the extra mile principal; How can I make it just a little bit better?

    Sometimes you don\'t need to know all the behind the scenes. If you aren\'t directly involved, why do you need to focus on the negative?

    Write things down while they are fresh in your memory. The faintest ink is better than the best memory.

    Little things matter. You can focus on a few things and put quality into them for things to stand out. And it doesn\'t always require a huge monetary expense.

    Sometimes it takes more than once to appreciate something.

    Kindness always goes a long way.

    Don\'t be afraid of showing things in progress. Some people want things to be \"perfect\" before they launch or release.

    Sometimes it\'s more important to have connection over content. Find your authentic tribe. Not everyone is going to vibe with your work.

    Be aware of overwhelm. Strive for simplicity.

    The energy you bring into a collaboration can make or break it. It\'s not so much whether things are positive or negative. although that is one component of it as opposed to are the energies complementary or life giving--Does the collaboration help you move forward to the end result?

    Being Present and Honoring Your Path to Creativity

    Being Present and Honoring Your Path to Creativity

    One thing in life is certain. And that is life is unpredictable.  You don’t always know what will happen next. Does that trigger fear? And what is fear to you?  Anxiety? The unknown? Or, can you approach fear in a different way, as an acronym that stands for feeling excited and ready? I thought about this after my conversation with the insightful Louise Reichlin of Louise Reichlin & Dancers, also known as Los Angeles Choreographers and Dancers on the topic of the unknown and not being afraid of failure. We had a wonderful conversation about her longevity with her dance company celebrating 40 years this year, with performances on October 19th and 20th at The Barnsdall Gallery Theater. We also discussed her paths to purpose, different learning styles, the importance of being present and more.  I was so excited to interview her in person, in her home, in a room that was full of fascinating dance history and making art.

    How Decisions Make Dreams Come True

    What do you do when you are hospitalized in a foreign country and you don’t speak the language? When doctors tell you that you won’t live past age 25? If you’re Hal Banfield, you press through despite these odds. And you know that doctors are NOT God.  Former professional dancer turned award winning journalist and photographer Hal Banfield and I talk about this experience that happened at the height of his dance career, how his decisions made his dreams come true, the process of publishing “I Am Dance” and more on this latest podcast session.

    How an Experiment Became an Experience: The Rise of The Leela Dance Collective

    How an Experiment Became an Experience: The Rise of The Leela Dance Collective

    What started as an experiment to carry on a legacy, has turned into a successful dance company, The Leela Dance Collective.  They have provided incredible experiences to audiences all over the world. Their latest work, Son of The Wind,  will be presented soon at one of my favorite venues, The Ford Theaters in Los Angeles on Saturday, September 14th, 2019 at 8:00pm. I had the pleasure of having an in-person conversation recently with the lovely Rina Mehta, co-artistic director, at Soho Dance LA Studio, where Rina teaches. I was so excited to observe her class and learn more about kathak dance, a classical dance form that originates from Northern India. It is engaging, percussive and a joy to watch.
