It’s time to Dance Dance Party Party

This starts tomorrow at the Mt Pleasant Community Centre, 1 Kingsway. 8:45-9:45pm

DDPP™ Vancouver, BC!

What’s Dance Dance Party Party?

It’s a fun-focused, free-form, fitness party for ladies. The official rules are: No Boys, No Booze, No Judgement.

DDPP Vancouver has added a No Talking rule, because our sound system isn’t very loud.

It’s like having a slumber party with your best friends, only you just met them.

It’s a place where you are free to go wild. Or just wiggle in the corner if that’s your thing.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I wear?  Whatever you want. But keep this in mind – YOU WILL SWEAT. I wear workout clothing: a supportive sports bra, shorts, tank top, and running shoes (because I like to bounce). You can wear a dress, a bodysuit, track-pants or jeans. You can even dance barefoot. You are the master of your own domain at DDPP. Just remember, come prepared to sweat.

What kind of music do you play? Every…

I have a question for you

I’m working on another article about producing indie events. I’m going to focus on comedy shows and I’m curious to know what you think.

This pertains to shows which are not at a ‘comedy club’ venue ( Yuk Yuks etc.).

Thanks for answering!

Sparkle Bunny Wont Stop Dancing

Remember Sparkle Bunny?

I created the character back when I was attending Studio 58 and wrote a 20 minute solo show about her for my final project. She then lived on as a Fringe show, and in videos like this.

Well, Sparkle Bunny is still alive. At least in the eyes of judges. A year or two ago my friend Matthew Kowalchuk and I cowrote a script based on my character and we were finalists for a film competition. Now we are one of five final scripts for a competition called Hot Shots  

The purpose of the contest is to provide sponsorship and monetary support to an exceptional local short film script that might not otherwise have the opportunity to be made into a film. It was founded by Ed Brando (William F White International Inc.), Paul Armstrong (Celluloid Social Club), Aaron Houston (‘Sunflower Hour’), and Scott Campbell.

Last week the script I cowrote was read at the Cold Reading Series. I wasn’t there, but apparently it got a lot of laughs. 

This Sunday we are pitching it to the judges. I’m the only girl involved in the competition this year. Which is kind of bitter sweet. 

I know it’s a weird request, but if you could you put out some good ‘vibes’ and send Sparkle Bunny some PLUR, this Sunday afternoon I’d really appreciate it. We will be pitching our fun, playful, and comedic script that’s about growing up and accepting yourself for who you are, sparkles and all. 

There’s something about Sparkle Bunny that continues to resonate with people, and for that I am grateful. 

Head Shots

Getting head shots is my least favorite part of being an actor. However, I just had a lovely session with Melanie Kelly, whom I’ve known for years, and I think I had my best session yet.

It’s hard to control my expressive face and dance-spazy body in photos but Melanie told me exactly what I needed to hear to get more of a ‘commercial’ look. Here’s hoping I can book that toothpaste ad so all those years of orthodontics can be paid off.
