70th Entry, December 21, 2017

It’s been awhile! But I have a LOT to report. My fourth and final year at Juilliard has been the busiest time of my life. I’ve done outreach performances across New York, attended galas, showcases, fundraised, babysat, danced in a photo shoot, rehearsed for hours on end, trick-or-treated, hosted dinner parties, applied for grants, and planned a ...

I am a Senior at the Juilliard School. I simply cannot believe it! I wrapped up my summer with more ballet classes, and spent a week in New Hampshire with the family I babysit for. Before I knew it, the woods and the lake were behind me and I was back in the studio! The first two weeks of school were jam packed- classes, headshots, rehearsals, s...

New York: a city where everything and anything comes at you from every direction. I think that’s the best way to describe what’s been happening with me these past two weeks. I’ve been working hard from 9am-5pm four days a week, taking dance classes, yoga classes, hitting the gym, and generally taking advantage of NYC in the summer. I watched Jur...

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I think this is turning into the best summer ever! On Monday morning, I received an envelope with my name on it and nothing else. When I opened it, to my surprise, I found 4 tickets to the Museum of Natural History, a Starbucks gift card, and a lovely thank you note! I realized that it was all from the pho...

You won’t believe what I’ve been up to the past week! I can hardly believe it! I’m going to jump right in to the good stuff! On Monday, I attended the 71st Annual Broadway World Theater Awards at the Lyric Theater on 42nd street. The ceremony honored stand-out performers who made their Broadway’s debuts in the past year. One Juilliard alum, A...

I’m a free bird! The last couple of weeks of school were crazy busy, but it’s now officially summer break! I can’t believe I’m officially a Senior at Juilliard! Time flew by! I’m excited to kick off a wonderfully exciting summer of work (at my very own desk!). Today is the first day of summer and the first day of full time working and I could...

One performance is over and with, and we are now in the theatre to tech for Senior Production! Last week I was in the theatre until 10 or 11pm hanging lights, tying cables to pipes, designing lighting sequences, and prepping wardrobe. This week is official week of the shows and my schedule is crazy! I have several official positions during th...

63rd Entry, April 22nd, 2017

The curtain’s come down, the makeup is off, and the feet are VERY sore. The shows went very well, and the New York Times gave Biped rave reviews! (I put the link at the end of this post for everyone to enjoy!) Well, there’s no rest for the Juilliard dancers because we had rehearsals this Monday for Senior Production. We began the rehearsal pr...

62nd Entry, April 11th, 2017

Well, I’m writing to you as an official adult! I turned 21 on Sunday, and I had the best weekend of all time. It started on Saturday night with some friends, pizzas, and lots of fun! On Sunday, I celebrated in almost all NYC neighborhoods. On Sunday, I started with brunch in SoHo. Then, I went to the Museum of Moving Image in Astoria, Queens....

61st Entry, March 31st, 2017

Spring Break has never felt so good! Two weeks of break have flown by and I’ve accomplished so much! As sort of a spur of the moment decision, I was invited to join a friend in London for a week! The trip was a purely tourist adventure- No dancing involved! Before I left for break, I had one of my classmates film me doing a run of Biped, the ...

Now that I’m back on the blog writing scene, I have so much to share with you all! What I’ve done just today warrants a blog entry! I have had about three huge hurdles I had to jump. I’ll start from the very beginning. For the past two years, the Alumni office at Juilliard has put on a fund raising program around Valentine’s Day. For $1, a st...

59th Entry, January 19th, 2017

I must say that this week is one for the books! As Juilliard students, we are fortunate enough to gain access to major events happening in and around Lincoln Center. Many foundations, corporations, etc., often allot a certain number of free tickets to Juilliard students. On Monday night, I attended Lincoln Center’s Fall Gala. The Gala honored...
