SO Liz De Guzman Remembers…

NOT Really My post. Credit goes out to Liz De Guzman (HI BIG SIS!) for all this reflection. I thought this was a pretty sweet note and decided to post it up for all to show. Hopefully everyone who went to ECDC is still on that  “dance high.” Congrats again to FR3SH for placing first at ECDC!


So I Remember….
LIZ and DENNIS and ARNELbeing 18 and watching my first dance video. It was Kaba Modern’s Vibe 10 set. Last night, I met Kaba Modern and in DC, I met Arnel Calvario and told him I loved his CSLA media kit that I worshiped for the last 3 years..

A year and 1/2 since watching my 1st dance video, I joined the FR3SH Family and have been blessed w/the best memories/experiences:

I kno for a fact i’m forgetting something/someone – (FR3SH feel free to remind me) but nonetheless..

What makes these experiences worthwhile is sharing these memories with the most amazing FR3SH FAMILY! You are the SOURCE of my INSPIRATION on a daily basis.

With everything I do, with every decision I make – I do for my FR3SH Famiy, for the east coast dance community, for the good of the universal dance community.

I live each experience looking to learn and to inspire. If I can even slightly touch the life of one person as each experience/guest teacher has inspired me, I would be grateful.
