Hello Internet;

As many of you know, I was hired by the Atlantic Canada Ballet to teach drama to their students who are aged 5-18. Well, on Sunday night I made the move to Moncton (3/4 of the time) to work.

I’m trying to adjust to life here. It's strange not being at home with my partner and pets. I do miss them. I’m living in an “in-between” house owned by a lovely local stage manager. I move into my new apartment in September with a new roommate.

This is one of the few times in my life I can point to as a big change. I’m sitting in a Starbucks watching a man busk outside of mama’s restaurant just taking it all in.

I am excited to work with new people, explore new performance and take lessons. Maybe get back in shape and learn ballet as well. My studio has crazy high ceilings and I get to direct more. I moved for a reason.

Moncton will become a part-time home eventually.
