MAKS & VAL LIVE ON TOUR: OUR WAY came to DPAC last night for their 29th show with their all-new sizzling theatrical 50 city dance tour! 

Brothers Maksim and Valentin Chmerkovskiy, the hottest stars of ABC’s hit show Dancing with the Stars, brought to life the show they have dreamed about since childhood ! This show combines an honest and unfiltered narrative of their life story, with the world class dancing, creativity and passion they are
known for.  Collaborating with the greatest choreographers in the business
and supported by a cast of fellow dance professionals, the show was full of surprises! For example, did you know Val was a classically trained violinist? For those who did not know, he showcases his musical skills alongside his dancing skills during the show. That was quite a surprise to me! 

Due to sacrifices made for family Val shared that his brother Maks never went to prom, but he did last night! That was a highlight of thw ahow when a lucky fan from the audience got  a chance to dance her dreams with Maks last night! Here are a few pics from that fun moment! 

Maksim Chmerkovskiy commented, “Val and I have pushed each other to be better dancers every day since we were kids, and this show will fulfill a lifetime dream to perform on the same stage together across the country.  We want to connect with our audience and take the performance to a whole new level.  There will be no holding back on this tour.”

“The essence of this show will be
the story of two brothers and the passion we have for life, family, opportunity
and, of course, dance,” said Valentin Chmerkovskiy. “It will be the most honest we’ve ever been to an audience. We want to entertain with incredible
choreography and inspire while sharing our story, our way.”

Maks & Val Live On Tour: Our Way is Co-Choreographed, Co-Produced and
Co-Created by the 2 brothers making this truly a family affair! This amazing , broadway quality show was well produced and as promised, was personal and reflective . They showed us how they are living their American Dream and thanked us for bring apart of it.

Thank you Maks and Val for your dedication and devotion to dance. Your emotional performances were inspiring. I personally loved every minute of it and believe all in attendance did too! For up to date information and to purchase tickets, go to MaksandValTour.com.

#BringItLiveTour takes #Raleigh on a ride @DECRaleigh @BringItLifetime #DD4L ! #soNCsavvy RECAP #bringit

On July 13,2016 , Coach D and her Dancing Dolls of Lifetime’s Bring It! came to Raleigh, NC to show off and show out at Duke Energy Center for The Performing Arts as part of the “Bring It! Live” tour. SobeSavvy.com joined fans to see the Dance Team Grand Champions & TV stars, known for their high-kicks and hair-flips , on their first tour! 

Whether you watch the Lifetime show, where Bring It! has aired for three seasons and counting, or have seen the Dancing Dolls compete across the country, anyone who goes to see these dancers on tour would enjoy their performances! Coach D told the Raleigh audience to strap in, buckle up and prepare ourselves for a rollercoaster ride because the Dancing Dolls came ready to thrill us! 

Once the DJ dropped the beat and yelled  DD4L , the crowd filled with young kids, teenagers, young adults and parents stood up on their feet to see the high-octane dance and athleticism that these dancers have brought to the hip-hop majorette world. The dance routines are filled with hip-shakes that could cause an earthquake, death drops, splits, and their own brand of power and energy, which has earned them more than 100 trophies! 

This tour showcased their other dance styles as well, from ballet, jazz, to a moving contemporary dance piece paying tribute to the #BlackLivesMatter movement, as seen here:

We were reminded that a “Change is Gonna Come” and to not only be inspired but to be inspiring ! I believe the best is yet to come for Coach D and these women on their dance/life journey and encourage you to support and attend this tour coming to a city near you!

A celebration of the music of Kevin Keller and the creative relationship shared with Ray Sullivan, Miami Contemporary Dance Company’s Artistic Director.

On Friday, Feb. 6 at the Colony Theatre on Lincoln Road, I joined other dance performance art lovers to the premiere of Miami Contemporary Dance Company Presents


 Miami Contemporary Dance Company (MCDC) presented their first production of the year, Light , featuring three original choreographies by Artistic Director Ray Sullivan, with music by New York composer Kevin Keller: Shadow Light and the WORLD PREMIERE of Luz x 3. The evening highlighted the collaboration between Choreographer and Composer, and will take you on a journey through three performances. The lyrical choreography of Shadow Light explored shadow and light through movement, Not in My Name sheds light on the unconquerable human spirit and Luz x 3 examines the abstract path that light illuminates, as it intertwines with the captivating movements of MCDC’s stellar dancers. The costumes and sets were designed by internationally acclaimed designer, Jorge Gallardo and light design by the renowned Carla Iparraguirre.


The performances brought the almost sold out house to their feet. Treat yourself or sweetheart with a early Valentines Day surprise. It is guaranteed to Light up not only your eyes but your spirit as well!  Be sure to check out their final performance on Saturday, February 7, 2015, 8:00 p.m.Tickets are $25, $35 and $40, and are available online at miamicontemporarydance.net or call 305-434-7091, Tuesdays through Saturdays,12 p.m. – 5 p.m. For group rates and special discounts, contact JohnM@MIamiContemporaryDance.net.

Shaping Sound !Miami Tour Stop Recap June 13, 2013

I adore the art of dance! It moves me. And I am not alone. On June 13, I had the pleasure of joining other dance lovers at 8pm at the famous Colony Theater, located at 1040 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach for an unforgettable sold out performance from Shaping Sound.

Shaping Sound, the hottest new contemporary dance company in the country, was formed by Emmy®-nominated choreographers Travis Wall, Nick Lazzarini, Teddy Forance, and dance visionary Kyle Robinson . They took the stage with ten world-class dancers to present a synergy of sight, sound and movement. The audience filled with all ages were treated to explosive choreography showcasing the dynamic rhythm, speed and physical strength of these visionaries. Company members have been featured on “So You Think You Can Dance”, “Dancing With The Stars” and toured internationally with recording artists and world-renowned dance companies.

The creation of the dance company was featured in the Oxygen original series called “All the Right Moves,” which chronicled the search for dancers and musicians to join what is now Shaping Sound. Dance Magazine says of the show, whose tour coincides with the 10th anniversary of “So You Think You Can Dance”: “Smart, sassy and super cool “!

I thoroughly agree and encourage you to see this show when it comes to a city near you!

Enjoy these pictures from the Thursday night, 8pm show in Miami!
