I choreographed this solo over 10 years ago. I loved dancing and choreographing “contemporary/lyrical” and this is actually one of the only videos of myself dancing that I enjoy watching. Now it’s certainly not because it’s technically perfect or impressive or without flaws. I was never going to win SYTYCD, I was never going to be able to hold my leg next to my head, or pull off any of the tricks we see in contemporary dance today, but when I was dancing it was about the movement and the story and it filled my heart. I fell in love with the way dance could portray emotion. Even though this isn’t the style I’m dancing on a broadway stage 8 shows a week, I don’t think I would be where I am without it! I am so grateful for the way dance captured my young heart and for a life where I can tell stories for a living! I hope I can use dance to communicate emotions that will awaken the hearts of the audience every night! I hope you all enjoy this little tidbit of my personal self. 💖 💖 💖 💖 💖 🎵: @ronpopemusic “A Drop in the Ocean” 🎥 edit: @beccaleebackstage the Instagram genius #dance #dancer #awakenyourheart #sharelight #spreadlove #dropintheocean

Flashback Friday to last week at the Fropening! I was so grateful to be there supporting my man and there’s only two weeks until I get to do it again at the Pantages opening in LA! I’m so excited to be involved in parts of this journey with @kellymethven! ❄️ ❄️ ❄️ ❄️ ❄️ @frozenbroadway #frozennationaltour #openingnight #fropening #thiswallthough #toohappyforeyes #fbf

On Wednesdays we remember the fun we had at a mansion devoted to PINK! The Rosé Mansion was an adult wonderland, full of science (which you know I loved), history, and beautiful locations all about rosé! It was a dream come true, thank you for having us! 💖 💖 💖 💖 💖 @meangirlsbway @rosewinemansion #rosemansion #pink #expectmanymorepics #smize #photoshootseverywhere #toohappyforeyes

Happy five years to the city where industrial meets nature, where the dream meets the struggle, and where I’m always kept on my toes! Thank you for knocking me down so that the bright times shine that much brighter, thank you for the endless winters so I remember to appreciate the sun, thank you for your high costs so that I have learned how to save and also when it’s worth it to splurge. Thank you for allowing me to live my dreams, and accomplish my goals, and for giving me a sense of belonging. You are one frustrating city and one amazing city. Thank you for the beautiful journey. 🌃 🌃 🌃 🌃 🌃 📸: @reneemorellophotography #nyc #fiveyears #whatbringsyoujoy #adventure #livingthedream #thestruggleisreal

Here’s a very special Sunday throwback because I had the most wonderful morning at Girl Scout headquarters talking on the panel for an anti-bullying workshop! It looks like when I was a daisy I had no problem surrounding myself with loving friends, but as I grew up, like so many young girls, I experienced bullying. It is so important for us grow from those experiences and to encourage others to share their light and their talents without the fear of being bullied for the beautiful, unique things that make them amazing! I was honored to join forces with @girlscouts and @hat_not_hate to hopefully help inspire a new generation of kind, empathetic, empowered women! 💙 💙 💙 💙 💙 #girlscoutsusa #hatnothate #spreadlove #sharelight #bekind #wereallstars #girlscout #daisy @meangirlsbway

Well it’s official @kellymethven has left NYC to tour the country as an adorable snowflake! I’m so excited for him and for all the adventures we’ll get to go on together, but New York feels a little lonelier without his hugs, they’re definitely worth melting for! @frozenbroadway ❄️ ❄️ ❄️ ❄️ ❄️ #frozenfirstnationaltour #longdistancerelationship #sendtreats #adventure #somuchbeard

Starting off our 11 show week by channeling this moment. I’m pretty sure this week is going to feel a lot like climbing those sand dunes; the end is in sight and the hike doesn’t seem that terrible but you keep climbing and it feels like you’re going no where (check the tiny people up the hill for perspective). All that matters is the possibility for positivity and beautiful moments along the climb. Let’s do it! 🧗🏻‍♀️ 🧗🏻‍♀️ 🧗🏻‍♀️ 🧗🏻‍♀️ 🧗🏻‍♀️ #11showweek #sanddunes #broadwayishard #spreadlove #sharelight #sendtreats @meangirlsbway

Keep off the grass 💚 But actually, that’s what that plaque says. I always follow the rules you guys! But this week I think I’m going to break a few; the rules about what I think is possible, the rules about what I’m “supposed” to fear, the rules about what’s appropriate to eat before a show! Sometimes you just deserve the milkshake! What rules are you going to break this week?! 💚 💚 💚 💚 💚 📸: @reneemorellophotography #rulefollower #breaktherules #feelingalive #green #keepoffthegrass

Our relationship to a T... get it?! The time has come for the OG Therman siblings to part ways. I’ve worked my last five contracts with @brenstims and I don’t know what I’m going to do without his sassy dance captaining to guide me. I’m so grateful for all the laughs and all the friendship and especially for the experience of having an annoying twin brother, that one has really TRANSFORMED me😉. 💖 💖 💖 💖 💖 @meangirlsbway #twinbrother #miket #mikeandlizzie #endofanera #theprommusical #dancecaptain #ocaptainmycaptain

Today was a very very important day. I’ve been holding onto this picture for almost a year because this picture is very very important to me. This picture is from the Macy’s Day Parade, we were so excited because, as ensemble members, we never imagined we would get to perform something that featured us. That featured all the hard work we have put in for years. It was a dream come true. It was so surreal. We cried so hard when it was over haha. We were overwhelmed in the best way. A few months later that incredibly special moment was ripped away from Stephanie. That moment we shared on the parade became more sacred because we weren’t sure we would ever get to dance it together again. Tonight, I looked at her beautiful face, the face of a warrior, the face of a survivor, with tears in my eyes because we got to dance together again. A moment we weren’t sure we would ever get. I was again overwhelmed. I don’t know how to put into words how special and important tonight is and will always be. You are a gem @stephbizz14 I am forever grateful to share a broadway stage with you. I am insanely proud of you. 💕 💕 💕 💕 💕 #survivor #broadway #pinkpony #comeback #inspiration

Hold on tight! I have a feeling this week @meangirlsbway is going to be just like this coaster. There will be some wonderfully exciting moments, a couple really sad ones (starting with missing @momoinnyc already!) and a few that I’m sure will surprise me, but I’m certain they will all be as beautiful as this. Come along for the ride! 🎢 🎢 🎢 🎢 🎢 #emotionalrollercoaster #upsanddowns #graduationdays #october3rd #meangirlsday #newadventures #reunions #recoveries #letsgo

I woke up like this... arthritic feet and mediocre turn out included 😏 Ok but actually, can I wake up on a lake everyday? Growing up I always thought I was beach person; the sun, sand, and crashing waves always felt like the adventure I would want for my future. But the more time I spend on lakes and in beautiful forests I’m starting to believe I’m meant to live on smaller waters. There is something so refreshing and relaxing and rejuvenating about being beside a lake, surrounded by trees and quiet birds, with much gentler waves. I look forward to when life leads me to my very own lake home. After living out my biggest dreams, this perfectly imperfect body is going to need the soul refreshing energy of those waters. 🛶 🛶 🛶 🛶 🛶 📸: @reneighhh_ ❤️ #lakehouse #iwokeuplikethis #lake #centralpark #arthritis #broadwayishard #grateful #refresh #perfectlyflawed #retiringat30soundsappealing

We took advantage of the new fall weather and went apple picking last Monday! A quick trip out of the city was so refreshing and it was a gift that kept on giving with all the delicious apple treats I ate this week!! Looking forward to finding more fun ways to rest and recover, taking any and all suggestions! 🍎 🍎 🍎 🍎 🍎 📸: @kellymethven 🥰 #applepicking #fall #fallflavors #toohappyforeyes #restandrecovery

Heading into a five show weekend @meangirlsbway! We’re starting a cool little project here this weekend and I hope it brings some light to you all! @coralineflower had the brilliant idea of asking us all to dress up for the end of our week. Broadway is hard you guys, in so many ways, so sometimes you have to work from the outside in. It’s only day 1 and her mission has already inspired positivity and confidence; every single one of us walked in with a smile today! When you feel good about yourself it’s so much easier to share your light with others! Here’s a throw back to the last time we all pulled ourselves together at the same time and I hope you can see how infectious feeling good about yourself and spreading positivity is! What do you do to give yourself a little boost when you’re tackling something difficult?! 💄 💄 💄 💄 💄 #sharelight #positivity #dressupwithapurpose #fiveshowweekend #twoshowday #broadwayishard #livingthedream #sharelight #spreadlove #nyfw

Tonight belongs to them! I cannot believe @theprommusical closes tonight. I am so sad this story will no longer be on a broadway stage but the 309 performances were a gift. It means that 309 audiences got to witness the fierce dancing, the hilarious cast, and the beautiful message. 309 audiences walked away inspired. Thousands of lives were changed, thousands of hearts softened, thousands of voices heard, and thousands of unruly hearts felt seen for the first time. A show like The Prom, that shares inspiring and life changing stories, is what Broadway is all about. It’s why I do what I do. I am honored to have been part of the journey. 💜 💜 💜 💜 💜 You ladies better STRUT today! I know you will all give it all you’ve got! I wish I could be there to witness the beauty one more time. #theprom #unrulyhearts #closing #309 #broadwaychangeslives #mandyandashleyforever #tonightbelongstoyou
