Well this definitely wasn’t a boring year. The last week may have been rough but I am by no means slowing down; just a lil’ tune up. Very grateful to have all of you in my life, to be able to share and give love, and to continue. I love you so much. Still reeling over another viral video. Still honored to performing domestically and abroad near-Monthly. Grateful as fuck to doing what I love always. To sharing love and kindness with every single person we interact with, and to find love for yourself (&myself) along the way. happynewyear top9 thankyou couldntdoitwithoutyou love art dance

The 8 hours I was out of the ER/ICU to spend Christmas with my Mom was not enough, but it was perfect. I will spare you the essay for now, but I want to say thank you for supporting me and my family as I figured out what was happening to my body the last week. Your texts, calls, and visits kept me alive and continue to remind me why I am here. I am so, so grateful to be here. Major shoutout to @nyulangone nurses, and of course to my endlessly supportive, loving, and caring mom. here

Wowowow - all the love @sweatconcierge. This so means so much, especially coming on the heel of my 4th month teaching this week! Come shake with me @barmethodcobblehill & @barmethodwilliamsburg, and read my full essay about how dope this is below!! • • • I don’t usually write status’ like this but I have to share all events on Facebook b/c there’s been little time to hang out. Gratefully, my Tio & Titi are okay in Puerto Rico as are all my family on the island. @preludenyc was a smash. The 35 artists who shared their process - life - work with us...all I can say is thank you for reminding me of why we do what we do how we do it, and how privileged we are to be in our community in this great city. At the tail end of the festival, a child with their parent came up to me and said “omg - I know you!!! What are you doing here?? I love your music and my favorite video is your Somebody to Love video!!” Needless to say I was shocked, not because of this person’s age but because they knew me at all. Their parent chimes in - “yeah, I can’t get them to stop playing your music!” Okay wow...still no words for this moment yet but check in with me in a week after I’ve let that land. Fast forward to teaching for the first time in a few days...all weekend classes at The Bar Method Williamsburg. We’re in the middle of our challenge where you can take 3-4-5 classes per week. I (manic) have committed to taking 5 classes per week for the last month and have somehow not passed away doing so. I arrive to class at our Cobble Hill studio...a few moments go by...and then @paigeehackworth tells me that this article was written about my class(!!!). Class is about to start, Hackworth kicks my ass (gluteus maximus), I forget about article until 15 mins ago and wow folks....this is awesome. I never thought I’d teach fitness ever, nor did I think I’d enjoy it truly as much as I do. This is a really nice write up about my class, and it’s especially cool having come at the start of my 4th month as an instructor THIS WEEK. We’re ranked 9 in all barre classes in NY again, wtf. Next week, I’m working with meredithmonk and the following patcatterson - more about November soon @thebarmethod

I got interviewed about my work as a dancer & choreographer, and how I'm transposing that back into my new music - @andreamuhlbauer is a gem and this was so fun! ・・・ On this episode of DLEW, I talk with @joseishere , queer latinx recording and visual artist. It's a difficult journey to find the thing that you're TRULY passionate about - but José is here to tell us why there's nothing more important. Doing what scares you is one of the more influential decisions you can make in your career. Join us on this episode of DLEW to hear why.

headed home after the most rejuvenating trip to the Cape, and a last minute photo shoot next to the salt marsh 👸 edited stills to be shared nonstop post-ride home. Much love to Paul & Colin always, and to Gary, Shane, and Toppy for a radical time.
