When I think of movement I think of dance, which is what I do whenever the spirit moves me. I’ve been taking tap for over 10 years now, and since it combines music/sound and movement I thought it’d be perfect to film and experiment with. I chose So What? from the Kind of Blue album by Miles Davis to tap to, because it’s my go-to music for inspiration.
My “costume” for the piece is realistic, and includes a white GAP tuxedo shirt I bought at my favorite Goodwill Thrift Store, a pair of white shorts from Forever 21, and a pair of black leggings from Ross Dress For Less. Since black and white are traditional colors for tap dancing I thought I’d play around with the palette and give it a unique retro/contemporary twist.
I've been a Los Angeles-based fashion/feature writer over 20 years for a variety of publications including "Culver City News", "Antique and Collectables Monthly Newsmagazine", "Antique Journal", and others. I have a B.A. in Fashion Merchandising, from CSULA, and a Print and Broadcast Journalism Certificate from UCLA Extension. I just got accepted into the Masters of Fashion Journalism program at the "Academy of Art" which I start this fall. I'm known for my style and my fabulous dancing. My mother describes me as "dressing like "Vogue" and dancing like "Soul Train"." Besides writing, I also love drawing, photography and reading. For the past two years I've also been working as a Special Ed Instructional Assistant for LAUSD.
