Girls On The Move
September 6, 2011
Pride, Dignity and Respect were the theme words for the Girls on the Move' and the 'Boys2Men Basketball' camps. These two programs were held this summer to help educate and keep kids active.
Kat and I had the pleasure to work with the girls program, which we focused our days on dance training, choreography and building self-esteem. Within seven weeks the girls learned six full routines to perform at the end of summer showcase. I was so impressed by their eagerness to learn and their dedication throughout the program. Some of the girls had never taken a dance class before and by the end of the summer they looked like they danced all their lives. Others had a fear of performing in front of a crowd, yet built their confidence and could even stand in the front line. All their hard work paid off and I am so proud of their progress!
The program comes to an end for now, but the memories I take with me will last forever.
Here's a little peak at my experience. Enjoy!
Saying Goodbye... Sort Of
September 1, 2011
Just like when you are two years old and doing it for the first time, your days continue with one small step in front of the other. I woke up to so many wonderful wishes on twitter about 'future endeavours' and 'new challenges' and 'the next big step'. The rumour is out and the rumour is true. So here's the scoop...
Yes, I have officially hung up my white Dance Pak boots and pointed up to the 300s to make some noise for the last time. I've spent five seasons experiencing the high of game nights and sincerely cherish every fan encounter, buzzer beater, high-five and dance. The statement has been proven; time really flies when you're having fun. When I think about my days in a Raptors splashed half top, I feel nothing but a lucky buzz of memories. I am thankful for every opportunity; the challenge of teamwork and standing as captain for the past three seasons, meeting fans across the world through travel and events and making so many incredible friends along the route.
