Kaleidoscope Heart

Listen...













"The idea behind 'Kaleidoscope Heart' is that we're all sort of in pieces and broken bits on the inside, but somehow, when you look through them, you still see something beautiful and colorful and magical..."
- Sara Bareilles

 Words by Sara Bareilles.

Original faux fused glass necklace designed by me for the lovely Miss Tori.

Inspired by each dancer who represents a singular color in a fascinating kaleidoscope
filled with light and movement and beauty that literally take my breath away.

To the director, Miss Tori Rogoski, and all the dancers at Dance Education Center, I look forward to witnessing your joy tonight at the premiere of  
The View 
and the Spring Spotlight recital this weekend.


"We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once."
