2018 has been a year of much excitement: getting @zochiljewelry started commercially, slowly becoming a mother and becoming School Director and Ensemble Director of @canyonconcertballet. As I enter #thanksgiving week and after a weekend like this one I am reminded of how lucky I am. .
I know they are not my kiddos in this photos but as teachers we pour all of ourselves into them, they are our future. I hope that the little one growing in me is as talented, funny and sweet as each one of you! Thank you for a very exciting, hectic, and energizing. You guys are training me for motherhood hahahaha ❤️🤪❤️😊#dance#dancefamily#dancecompany#colorado#fortcollins#dancer#dancers#nurturingartists#coloradodance @ladancemagic thanks for providing a space for the growth of these and many other young artists.
Our youngest movers, grooving while building important skills in creative movement and whimsey class. How can an hour long movement class support so many domains of development? Simple. By keeping the curriculum emergent. Come check it out! Our creative movement teacher, Emily Brady, is passionate about childhood development, dance, and all things whimsey!
We are so thankful for the few early donations we’ve received. Your support makes a huge difference to us!!.
We are still in need of $4300 to help make art happen in Fort Collins and beyond! YOU are a huge part of what we do!!.
We will be going live this week during our school outreach day in Colorado Springs to give you a glimpse of our company in action. Stay tuned 11/16 for updates!

Our student CJ Robinson, competed this past weekend at World Ballet Art Competition Grand Prix finals in Ontario, Canada. We are proud to announce that he was invited to perform his contemporary piece (choreographed by Kimberly Chmielewski) in the Gala.
CJ was awarded 1st Place in Contemporary, 2nd Place Classical and received a full scholarship to Canada National Ballet School's Summer Program.
Congratulations CJ! Your RMBA family is proud of you!
Movement serves as vital input for the vestibular and proprioceptive systems in the body! When these systems are supported by gross motor opportunities, it is proven that children have better focus, better listening skills to absorb and synthesize information, and promote literacy development. Bring your young movers Monday (4-5pm) and Wednesday (9:30-10:30). You’ll be here anyway, consider taking a yoga class while your child moves and grooves! Movement for them, movement for you!

On this episode of DLEW, I talk with Norway-based dance artist @lisa.cb .
How do you find your personal style? How do you know what kind of work you’d like to create? Lisa has one answer: be curious. Join us on this episode as Lisa dives into finding your style, switching your focus, dealing with mistakes, and continually learning.
“You have to love dancing to stick to it. It gives you nothing back, no manuscripts to store away, no paintings to show on walls and maybe hang in museums, no poems to be printed and sold, nothing but that single fleeting moment when you feel alive.”
