In October, the Gateway Playhouse in Somers Point, New Jersey further expanded their support of the arts to include featuring the work of a new local visual artist each month. The artwork can be viewed prior to the shows and during intermission and is available for purchase.

I had the opportunity to be the first  artist to show my artwork at the Gateway Playhouse. My connection paintings displayed through the month of October 2017. It’s really exciting to experience the overlap of artists supporting artists. Continue reading Visual Art Spotlight at Gateway Playhouse

Social Dancing at the Southern Jersey Shore

Now that dance has made its way into my artwork, it seems somewhat appropriate to share this here.

I recently set up the Facebook group, Salty Dances at the southern Jersey Shore to provide dancers a place to connect and arrange impromptu meet-ups in beach towns between Atlantic City and Cape May, NJ. If you or someone you know are into social partner dancing, join the group and please add your friends.

Inspired by the group DanceAir, I thought it would be helpful to set up a place for dancers to arrange and share plans with other dancers who also might be in town. West Coast Swing, East Coast Swing, Lindy Hop, Blues, Fusion,  Hustle, Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba, Zouk, Country, etc… all dance styles are invited.

Who doesn’t want to dance on vacation, right?!

The south Jersey Shore area offers so many excellent venues with great dance floors. Being a resort area, people come and go often which sometimes makes it challenging to find the other dancers down the shore. From outdoor concerts and band performances to open mic nights, nightlife venues, festivals and other events, the area has so much dance magic potential.
