Grease comes to Charlotte!

Grease will be in Charlotte through Sunday, December 6. I have tickets for one of the performances this weekend, and I’m so excited! Not only is Grease one of my favorite musicals, but Lauren Ashley Zakrin has the role of Sandy. Lauren was one of my favorites on the Legally Blonde reality series (Legally Blonde the Musical: The Search for Elle Woods), so it should be a lot of fun to see her.

World AIDS Day 2009

First held on December 1, 1988, World AIDS Day is an opportunity to raise awareness about AIDS and HIV.

Therefore, it seems fitting to mention Dancers Responding to AIDS (DRA), a fundraising program started by Hernando Cortez and Denise Roberts Hurlin (former Paul Taylor dancers). DRA raises money that goes to organizations that help dance professionals with AIDS and HIV. One of their fundraising methods is selling fun dance-related products online (like Nutcracker finger puppers -- too cute!). Check out their online store.
