Upcoming Event in Atlanta!

I

I am absolutely thrilled about this play and can’t wait to take my daughter and invite my girlfriends.

Blue Butterfly, the Black Ballerina is a poignant and entrancing play inspired by some of the greatest black ballerinas that have ever graced the stage.

The Backdrop:

The word ‘ballerina’ traditionally invokes the image of a beautiful and radiant Caucasian woman dancing with classical grace. However, that misconception has been shattered forever thanks to ballerinas like Misty Copeland – a dancer who has made history as a member of the prestigious American Ballet Theatre and as the first African American Female Principal Dancer. Ms. Copeland, along with Lauren Anderson (Houston Ballet), Aesha Ash (New York City Ballet), and Janet Collins (Metropolitan Ballet) are known as trailblazers, who have been breaking the barriers with fortitude and grace.

The History:

The story line of Blue Butterfly is mesmerizing. On April 4, 1968, the world as we knew it was changed forever. The Assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. left a profound impression on thousands of individuals, and a call for change and freedom resounded from coast to coast. The central character of the play, Anya Duport (an upper-class, Caucasian and gifted ballerina) feels increasingly suffocated by her overpowering mother. She searches for her own sense of ‘change’ and ‘freedom,’ and ultimately finds herself in the arms of Samuel Christopher Jackson, a black man. Together, they create something incredibly precious – a daughter who will one day become the first African-American ballerina.

The Play:

Based on Marian L. Thomas’ acclaimed book, Blue Butterfly, the Black Ballerina will offer a memorable performance from June 17 through June 19, 2016, at the Marietta Performing Arts Center, 1171 Whitlock Ave., Marietta, GA. It is a love story that delivers a powerful and emotional story of secrets, betrayal and forgiveness. Directed by Dr. Shondrika Moss – Bouldin, Blue Butterfly – The Black Ballerina is guaranteed to touch the hearts of all women – and the men who love them – everywhere. With the book already getting rave reviews, the play is anticipated to attract an unprecedented attendance.

Hello!!!

Thank you for checking in on my blog today!! I am so excited to tell you about this amazing event I attended on March 21st that was a great informative platform for women in business. This branding summit was open to all professional entrepreneurs who either had a successful business or have the dream to one day own their own business. This fabulous event made its stop in Atlanta and it was packed with a diverse panel who gave us exactly what we needed to hear and the inspiration to keep moving forward to reach our dreams. The event was held at the Westside Cultural Arts Center which by the way has become one of my favorite places to attend an event.

This was an perfect event, guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres, swag gifts and free drinks. There were many inspirational quotes and information that was very helpful to me in my quest for success….I learned a lot. I meet some great women and made great connections at this event. I even had the opportunity to see and speak with Celebrity Photographer Drexina Nelson who will be having a photographer class for novice users!! I will be taking her class so I can learn the art of photographer. If you ever have the chance to attend this event I highly recommend that you do so…. you will be glad that you did.
