    I do not know of her, but I will after some time on the computer tonight. She sounds amazing, and yes, a perfect role model. Thank you so much for the info. I truly agree with her quote on perception... it's all how you look at it. =)

    Life After Dance...

    Who is your favourite dancer?

    Life After Dance...

    I've taught for over half my life and up until recently had no plans to stop anytime soon. However, I was just diagnosed with Parkinson's. It began as a slight tremor in my left hand and is slowly expanding to other body parts. Now, all of a sudden, I'm not sure about the future. I have...
