Life in the Studio
Xulon Press, Incorporated, 2012 - Performing Arts - 198 pages
Having been involved in the world of gymnastics and dance since the age of 7, Debbie is aware that dance instruction is best taught in a practical setting, but this book sets a whole new stage for training. "Life in the Studio" is a whimsical look at the life of a dance studio owner and director. Studio life is not exactly a rose garden but it is certainly never boring! Dancers and non-dancers alike can chuckle, be encouraged and learn by reading the memoirs of this slightly tilted lady! "...I felt as though I was sitting with Debbie in a cozy coffee shop sharing similar life experiences and stories. I laughed! I cried! I smiled at the notion of something fresh to read on the topic of dance, ministry and the life of an artist. I appreciate how relatable and transparent Debbie is throughout the book and am thankful for all of the hidden tips that ultimately lead to success for those of us called to dance. - Cheryl Cutlip, Founding Director, The Project Dance Foundation and NYC Radio City Rockette "...she lets the reader into her worldview as a Christian dancer and studio owner... "There's never a dull moment at Reflections School of Dance" (p. 76), and the stories and insights Debbie gives is a delightful light read, you will enjoy picking up this book so you can laugh along with Debbie and reflect on her life at the Reflections School of Dance." - Dr. Neil Gilligan - Professional Dance Instructor, Author, Actor, Minister "Debbie has tapped into a real God-given gift. Her words are simple yet wise, and speak to the heart of the believer artist. Be prepared to be encouraged!" - Steve Rooks - Professor and Chair of Dance, Vassar College NY, guest instructor & dancer with Alvin Ailey and Martha Graham.
