China Beach. Golden Gate Bridge Park. We have been here in the Bay nearly three months. Today I celebrate a year since my heart was repaired. Now I am eight months pregnant. We’ve been testing time, waiting to hear from it.
Is this us? How are we digging here? Some things worth the mention:
The girls’ school is a bungalow. Classrooms open straight to the outdoors.
The school cafeteria is an area of benches under a huge tent – the mountains and palm trees are the back drop.
The weather is amazing
The mountains which wrap around the entire horizon are breathtaking
The weather is amazing
Hubby’s job is eight minutes one direction and the girls’ school is five minutes the other direction
As for my work …
Stanford University – Honorarium Master Dance Class
I taught a master dance class to undergraduate and graduate students embarking on new choreography for a course they took fall semester of 2013. My master class incorporated technique, theory and lecture together exploring Lester Horton’s contribution to American Modern Dance as both a performing artist and choreography as well as a sociologist. In culmination of the class I set original choreography on the students which will be included in the students’ choreographic piece for the class and dance company associated with the course based on Stanford University’s Campus.
Los Alto School District Arts Docent
Since we have moved to a district in the bay area that offers many wonderful programs within the curriculum, I figured I would jump right in and get involved. One of the programs I have become active in is called the Los Altos Arts Docents Program. Click here to learn more about the program itself. In sum, as an arts docent, I approach the lessons I teach with my background as a trained anthropologist, sociologist, educator and performing artist. I am so excited about this program!
Project Corner Stone – ABC Program Silicon Valley YMC/Santa Clara County
Yet, another wonderful program offered to students not just in the district we are now in but also within the county, PROJECT CORNER STONE and their ABC program is one I find to be an asset to students’ experience. My involvement in this program includes myself as a volunteer reader in both of our daughters’ classrooms. The lessons I teach again incorporate my background as a trained anthropologist, sociologist, educator, and performing artist.

I am looking forward to sharing more of work and tapping into the SF and the Bay Area’s dance scene. Time is telling. Will this be our home base? We will see…
