Living the Italian Dream: Part II – How it all began
June 10th, 2009

lulojc_dec04Sometimes I wonder in amazement, how Joel and I even got to have two such amazing people as Luca & Loraine in our lives… I always wonder how if one little thing had happened differently along the way, perhaps we would never have met them and our students would not have had the opportunity to benefit from their teaching. As a result, my life definitely wouldn’t have been the same, and I wouldn’t be the person I am today.


Living the Italian Dream: Part I – Studio Danze Baricchi
June 5th, 2009

Luca and Loraine in their studio, Studio Danze BaricchiOh the heat! Having a West-facing apartment, Joel and I have been just baking at our place for the past two days! It reminds me of those hot Italian summers when we lived in Italy. I remember it being so unbearably hot in the studio (cuz it didn’t have air conditioning) that we’d go and practice from 11pm to 2am in the morning! Those were crazy days, but when you’re insanely neurotic about dancing (as we are), you do anything to improve!
