Show Off

Life as a dancer/singer/actress on the verge. Trying to be perfect. Broadway nerd. Very good at cartwheels.

This blog is things i draw inspiration from. Perfection. Broadway.

I want to have a combination of Charlotte D'Amboise' dancing, Jan Maxwell's acting, Jessie mueller's comedic timing, Stephanie j. Block/Kelli O'hara's voice, Carolee Carmello's vibrato, Sutton Foster's charm and Patina Miller's arms when i grow up. Well a girl can dream.

I have so much hope. Even though the chances are slim i will still have hope. I would rather have hope and end up disappointed then never hope at all.

My two cents on being a fan

there was a post that has been floating around and i’m too much of a coward to get involved in that discussion but i wanted to throw out what i think about the topic of stage dooring and being a fan.

Bottom line: there is nothing wrong with interacting with your favorite performers but be respectful.

If you really want to give expensive gifts, more power to you. Cupcakes? sure, if the person is worried about them they can throw them out. sending gifts is fine, As long as it doesn’t hurt the person IN ANY WAY. That being said my extent of being a fan is going to the stage door and giving the performer a note if they have really moved me. I feel weird doing anything other than that. In fact i had a twenty minute conversation with a performer after a show once and all i wanted to do was leave because i felt so bad for taking up so much of their time (they kept asking me questions though so i had a hard time leaving). 

One poster claims that it is wrong to go to a show and not feel fulfilled without a stage door experience. While i could go either way, i really believe if it makes you happy to interact with people at the stage door, do it. Most performers like it, if they didn’t they wouldn’t go out the stage door.

Last thing, being a rabid fan on the internet isn’t very different then being one in person because those people/performers and such still see it. I think it is also creepier because your doing it behind their back from a unknown platform. i think this makes performers even more weirded out because they don’t know who is conducting the “assault.” When your blog gets brought up in a Show People interview and the person is not enthusiastic about it, that is the same as trying to get attention with cupcakes.

i personally think blog or cupcakes are fine ways to show love and devotion, i would never do it but those who get fulfillment of it thats fine. 

thats my two cents.

Misty Copeland’s Under Armour Ad Is Like Nothing You’ve Seen

We’ve been anxiously awaiting Misty Copeland’s first commercial for Under Armour ever since we learned that the American Ballet Theatre soloist signed with the athletic company back in January. And from the looks of this 60-second spot, it was well worth the wait.

i think I’m addicted to buying new clothes…

i have so many new clothes from this summer because of working at Lucky and being in University Village… Most of my money is being spent on Lululemon or Athleta. Its bad, but its also the first time in my life i actually like what i look like. 

Whoever said money can’t buy happiness was obviously not shopping in the right place.
