Can’t wait for some creative time!

I’m excited to get started working in my new studio.  I’ve never been through a renovation before, and this was a major one!  I’m custom building the space for dance, fitness and aerial shoots. We combined 2 smaller office spaces, knocked down walls, blew the ceilings out (now 13 feet high), put in a 20 foot cyc with a sprung floor and bolted an attachment to the ceiling joist  for aerial shots. Yes, a photo studio with a sprung floor and aerial capabilities!

Just as exciting to me is getting the chance to work with the 3 winners from my Instagram contest.  I asked the entrants to tag me in a post of a picture that inspired them to work hard everyday, and from those we randomly drew 3 names out of a hat (my daughter Oriane wanted to do it, it was in fact a beat up cowgirl hat).

The winners are…

Katia Raj (Studio Company Member, Gelsey Kirkland Ballet),  Jessica Kinnaman (Akhmedova Ballet Academy),  Felipe Galganni (Tap Dancer, Teacher: Steps, Broadway Dance Center).

We are cooking up some really great imagery to suit their styles and personalities.  I can’t wait to share with you all!
