Candy corny. Have fun be safe, don’t compliment the Freddy Kruger costume. It might not be a costume. 😳 p.s. I accept all donations of unwanted Snickers, Reese’s Pieces, and Dum-Dums.

Absolutely kickass @drunkyoga class at @greyladynyc! We posed, we danced, we sang, we twerked, we sipped. Thanks for letting me lead you. Stay tuned for upcoming classes! PS: ten dollars are going to @doctorswithoutborders! HELL YEAH! #dodrunkyoga #greylady #wine #namasteresponsibly #detoxtoretox

Production number in under an hour! Scrubbing Day from The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking, (I don’t own the rights to this music). These dancers SHOWED UP, and crushed it! Thank you for playing, keeping an open mind, and for bringing your best, beautiful selves. I love getting to borrow your dancers, @justinboccitto! See you next time 💙 @bdcnyc #bdcnyc #beginner #theaterdance #showup #danceclass #play #scrubbingday #props #anniekchoreo #teacher #pippilongstocking

(Cover your eyes, kiddos 🙈) Living my highly reflective film noir life with my Fairy Godstripper,  @tonyguerrero5678, who never ceases to AMAZE me. #tonyguerrero #bdcnyc #burlesque #danceclass #practice #progress #fionaapple #cover #itripped #alot #flirtingmywayoutoftrouble
Does anyone use Dubsmash anymore? This will always be my fave. Making good use of Sandy Island departure day, 2015. Thanks, Timehop! #amosmoses #jerryreed #sandyisland #week9 #timehop #linedancing #takemebackplease
Sandy Island 80’s must-haves: layers upon layers with a pseudo mullet, acid washed denim with a high waist, and lots of snuggles if it’s still chilly. The mysterious question is: how did everyone keep their sneakers that white??? It definitely wasn’t the farewell dance...@vamaguire @heyitsmenorae #dancingbabies #sandyisland #week9 #80’s #catchingflies #linedancing

Back b(end) of summer with my fellow elder limbo champs. You’d be gloating too if the rest of your competition was between the ages of 2 and 12! #sandyisland #week9 #watercarrival #limbo #howlowcanyougo #80sbabies #winnipesaukee #halpwearestuck
Rainbow Unicorn spotting on Lake Winnipesaukee! 🦄 #sandyisland #week9 #nh #winnipesaukee #paradise #summertraditions #unicetheunicorn
Boffo. Happy 10th! 🌼 #family #vt #hurricaneflats #mawwage @heyitsmenorae
#shareyourrejection Yes, I’ll jump. I have my BFA in Dance Performance. Freshman year of college, we had our dance juries at the end of the year. Think of it as any final for chem lab or history, but there’s no pencil to erase and change your answers. I had never been so nervous. I had never danced so horribly, and with so little confidence. I was angry that I wasn’t one of the favorite students. At my evaluation, the professor used really sugary, condescending language to encourage me to change my major. The written evaluation had criticism that I had no idea how to take and use to my benefit. I remember seeing the single word, ‘brittle’ on the page. I let myself believe everything, and let it consume me. I cried for hours. I sobbed to my family, letting myself feel small and unwanted. What would I do without dancing? What would i major in? I had no answers. After I let it out, I remembered-they accepted me into the program. They may have tried to let me go, but they also picked me out from hundreds of applications, and said “her.” I made it in, so forget that I had a bad day when stakes were high. I had my answer. I was going to finish. Fifty freshman was whittled down to thirteen seniors. And I figured myself out, and came out exactly the way I was supposed to. A graduate in eight semesters, stronger than ever, with my degree in hand. (The picture is from freshman year, the same day as juries-at the theater arts gala. That’s my dress from my high school prom-I could have worn that dress every day if I could!)

I love this edit from the @playzedtown Facebook page! Missing this freak and the rest of the Zedtown family! (And yes, that is all prosthetics and airbrushing). #zedtown #playzedtown #costamesa #ca #austin #tx #chandler #az #patientzero #witch #giglife #everybodyscream #survivorsandzombies #brainsplease #iwokeuplikethis #nerf #howlongwillyousurvive?
This movie is like coming home to my childhood self. I discovered it when I was ten, and even though it was creepy at times, I couldn’t stop renting it from Blockbuster. I saved my money for the deluxe double cd, and played it on loop. The music moved something in me that fueled my first choreography project. (NOT to Ease on Down!) Watching it years later in my own backyard was powerful, and the overture made me bawl. Call it camp, cheesy, a stoner flick, I will always love everything about The Wiz. (Bonus! Quick dance party right before the show starts, with a cameo from Cactus Pete!) #bryantpark #bpfilmfest #thewiz #home #1978 #graffitimunchkins #ificouldfeel #easeondown #toto #letsdance #cactuspete

The other night, I had the honor to work an amazing gig at Onegin-and was lucky enough to work alongside some amazing, talented, KNOWLEDGEABLE artists. @davidserero is one of the most professional people I’ve ever worked for. And Lily, you’re going places, gurl! Can’t WAIT to come back! #onegin #oneginnyc #cabaret #gogo #burlesque #giglife #saynotofabricglue #enjoyandgetemployed #dancetillyoudrop #idid
I am not one to film myself in class. But I have to show mad love to @tonyguerrero5678 He has helped me find the wings I thought had been clipped against my will. He has shown nothing but support and care, and even as I live the biscuit life breaking in new shoes, he knows just what it takes to bring out what he needs in his dancers to create the scene. I am forever thankful for you, Tony!
