Happy fall/winter greetings!

I’ve had a really busy few months, with my new job and rehearsing for 02 Dance Company’s Answers. Let me tell you about Answers – it’s an amazing contemporary dance show choreographed by the incredible Sarah Dolan and I hope you can come see it. Answers is playing November 7-9 at the Theatre Junction Grand and it’s a beautiful show that showcases stunning dancers as well as a captivating and compelling storyline.

I’m just so honoured to be a part of this experience. I grew up with a lot of the older dancers involved with the show and it's been so wonderful reconnecting with old friends and making new ones. Every step of this experience has been exciting – from the audition, through to the rehearsals, fundraising, silent auction and this week…moving into the theatre and performing for audiences.

Our show is title Answers because it asks a lot of questions that many of us ask ourselves throughout our lives. What will I be when I grow up? Am I the only one who feels this way? Where did the time go? Am I happy? Do I follow my heart or my head?

O2 Dance Company’s last show was Grounds, which was presented in the summer of 2012. Back then, I was an audience member and I had two very prevalent questions in my life at that point. The first one was will I get a job? I had just finished university and after investing so many years of hard work and money, I knew deep down it was worth it…but I wanted to see a concrete answer – in the form of a job.

The second question I asked myself, was would I ever be able to dance and perform at the same calibre as O2 Dance Company again. I used to dance a lot growing up and in my early adulthood…but then I basically quit to focus on school and to get work experience. Watching O2 Dance Company perform Grounds last year made me realize how much I missed dance and how I still have a passion for it…and if I could even just do one last show, I could walk away with closure and a final feeling of accomplishment.
