Right after Russia I flew to Istanbul, Turkey for Urban Dance Turkey. This was my first time in Istanbul and it is beautiful! The airport itself is just spectacular! I taught two classes on one day (hoping the dancers weren’t sick of me by my second class haha). The dancers had such high energy and were so enthusiastic! They made teaching so easy because they were so willing to learn and so excited! Thank you to Urban Dance Turkey and Dansfabrika for bringing me to your event and I can’t wait to come back! Anyone for heels next time? (;
This past week I was in Moscow, Russia for Project 818 Russian Dance Championships. This event has a special place in my heart, as it was the first international teaching job I ever did, and I will always remember that feeling of thinking someone loved my work enough to fly me 6,000 miles to teach! It was so much fun being back to where my international teaching started. Thank you Project 818 and all the incredible dancers that worked so hard for competition and workshops. You did a fantastic job!
