Hey Friends! If you’ve been reading the blog for awhile, you know that I try to do a Backstage Blog interview where I chat with dancers, educators, and business owners and bring you their wisdom. It’s one of my favorite things to do here on the blog, and I’m super excited that next month is going to be all Backstage Blogs, all the time!
Now there’s a practical reason I’ve done this as well: if you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know that I’ll be having a surgery in November, so the Backstage Blog Interview Palooza is timed so that I can be hands off on the blog and give myself some time for R&R.
It’s been an interesting process coming to terms with the fact that my body, mind, and spirit are in some serious need of rest when summer-fall have been an extremely busy time for me. (You can read more about that in this blog.) If you want to keep up on this journey of mine and see how I’m getting on, I’d love for you to follow me on Instagram, or search the hashtag r&r&r (that’s what I’m dubbing my November recoup month: rest & relaxation & recovery).
In the meantime, you can look forward to the AWESOME line up of interviews by reading a bit about each of my interviewees.
