It’s sure to be a funfilled event for everyone!  Come out to support our dance troupe as we perform a heart-warming and inspirational lyrical routine followed by an old school Hip Hop routine both choreographed by yours truly, Monica the Taptutor and performed by our dynamic dance troupe. 

The event starts at 7:00 p.m. at Beit ha Am (בית העם) located at 6 Ha-Nasi St in our beautiful hometown, Ashkelon.

Mother and Son Art to Heart Journey Tel Aviv and Back

This vid has been a long time in the making.  Had to do some soul-searching, however, one trip changed how I actually viewed my Son’s choice of art.  It was truly a great road trip for us and a lesson in how to listen to each other and appreciate each other’s art form.

I used to think about how in the past there was something always special about the age of each of our children…..the baby years, the terrible twos, first year of school, graduation from grade school….and then look out!!!  Nothing could have ever prepared me for having 4 teenagers. 

Funny how the lesson learned was on me this time in finding the joy in the NOW and not yesterday’s memories or looking so far into the future. What was to be a simple dentist appointment for my oldest in Tel Aviv turned into a heart to heart moment that allowed me to see my son as just a unique and extremely creative and courageous individual with his own voice through his art. Please don’t ever forget to live in the NOW and always find something to be grateful for.

Hope you enjoy our video and feel free to leave a comment. You can see more of Mike’s future art by following on instagram@Mikemagnetism

Guest Artist Maddie’s Double Platinum


My neice Maddie’s most recent performance from a national competition entry.  My family’s business, Caruthers’ Creative Center Dance Studio in Missouri, is one of the few African American owned businesses in the area that has stood the test of time. Congrats Maddie on your double platinum as well as the Competitive & Photogenic Award and 11th overall out of 80 dancers! Tough competition!

This multitalented teen was also nominated for All American in Cheer leading and made varsity squad as well as the competition team as an incoming freshman.  In addition, she excels at tumbling.  She has won numerous state band awards as well and is currently the only female trombone player.  She has recently had a dance gig with Kaufman Center and to top it off, she does all of this while maintaining a 4.0 G.P.A along with winning many academic accolades, including the President’s Academic Award.  She is an inspiration to those around her and a great influence on teens internationally.  Great job Maddie and keep it going!

Thanks for reading and if you support our youth, SHARE it with someone you love, LIKE👍  and or COMMENT💬 below!!!  ⬇⬇⬇  After all, the youth of today are our future.

 

Ballerinas in the Making

Practice, Practice, Practice!

I have often thought how much strength it takes to dance so beautifully with such grace.  It is grueling to submit your body to what is required in order to bring the beauty to this art form.  Excited to be embarking on a wonderful journey, teaching not just dance, but also about not giving up even though sometimes life gets hard.  Anything worth having takes work and commitment.

Thank you my beautiful ballerinas in the making for your inspiration and enthusiasm.  What a blessing you all are!
