Reflections of the Legend – Author Interview with E.A. Schneider

One of the things I wanted to do when I started At a Glance was to help support new talent.  Those who were out there pursuing their dreams and making a way for themselves.  I have always been someone who would share news and updates, doing my part to get the word out for people I ran across on Facebook or Twitter.  But At a Glance gives me a venue to showcase some of these folks, and in my own little way, be a part of their journey.  I hope to be able to continue to be fortunate to share their adventures with all of you.

That being said, recently I had the pleasure of getting to know a lovely lady named Elisabeth Schneider.  Elisabeth, or Beth, is in the process of publishing her first book.  Being an aspiring writer myself, I was interested in her journey and the book itself (it’s actually a series!) which uses the legend of Camelot as its backdrop.  Read More

Working Intelligently As A Dancer

As dancers we put in tireless amounts of blood, sweat, and tears, then often have less to show for it than we would ideally like.  It is only human to want to see instant improvement and results, and as we are acutely dedicated to our discipline we work ourselves to the bone to get to where we want to be.  I want you to think the next time you are presented with a new challenge or goal in your next class or performance, and ask yourself these questions:  Do I want to work brutally hard?  Or Do I actually want to achieve results?  I for one want the results, and while I’m more than willing to work hard for them, I want it to be a kind of hard work that also applies my intelligence.  Read More

Recently I had a chance to chat with my friend Henry Byalikov about his exciting participation in Baz Luhrmann’s movie, The Great Gatsby.  Henry is a familiar name to many of our regular readers, particularly those who followed along on Hector’s and my coverage of Dancing with the Stars this past season.  Henry is a Principal dancer on the show, currently performing with the Troupe.  Henry is also a busy guy.  When not working on Dancing with the Stars, he ties up his off-time with additional projects.  In the Fall of 2011, one of those projects was The Great Gatsby.  Read More
