Heather Lipson Bell on Better Lemons!
Hey! So excited to be teaching workshops on creative movement for pre-school! If you attended the conference and want to download the info sheet, here it is! Enjoy!
I am putting my pointe shoes back on to dance at the incredible Disney Hall in the LA Phil's production of Nixon in China. Please check out the link below to learn about this historic production and to buy tickets. I am both thrilled and honored to share the stage with such amazing artists.
One of my long term teaching gigs is at the Performing Arts Center in Van Nuys. I teach the upper level ballet classes. We just has our winter show, The Gift, and I want to share a picture of my advanced girls. I not only choreographed their piece, in which they shone, I made their costumes. Proud ballet mama here! They danced and looked so beautiful.
I am thrilled to have joined the writing team at Better-Lemons, writing about kick ass female artists who are equally passionate about saving the world. My first column features Debbie Devine, the incredible artistic director and founder of 24th Street Theatre. Read the article here and let me know what you think and who I should feature next!
I was asked to make an anniversary gift using sea glass gathered over a summer vacation. I took on the challenge; buying a power drill and learning to drill glass for the first time. After a few practice pieces, these are the final ones. I am proud of them and of the story that they tell. Always feel free to connect with me regarding custom or special order work. I love to bring your vision to life!
Sydney Guine, one of my long time students is featured as Dancer of the Week on the website Pretty Brown Dancers. Sydney was one of my ballet one and two dancers at the Performing Arts Center. She has since become a Debbie Allen Red Bird, performing with the junior company all over the country. Recently they were guests of Michelle Obama at the White House. Sydney attends the Los Angeles County High School of the Arts and is on her way to a fantastic dance career. She still takes my class whenever she can and is a gracious and humble student. I love that she is getting noticed and exaulted! Check out the article and her lovely mention of me here.
I am now teaching an open level (basically intermediate but everyone is welcome) class on Tuesday mornings at 9:30 at Anna Cheselka Dance Center in Studio City. This is in addition to my regular class on Sundays at 1:30. I'm so excited to give you all a second opportunity each week to come on out to dance. Classical ballet with a modern approach.
I decided to add one more stone to the big ring series....delicious and magical kyanite. Once again, available in silver or gold. Message me with size and metal preference. These are substantial in size. $75.00
