I’d like to officially announce the next chapter of Movimiento Dance Company. I find great pleasure in introducing you to a sexy, sassy and undeniably talented individual named Monique Richard. For years I have followed Mo’s growth as a dancer and watched her movement inspire many others. There’s no doubt in my mind that this is the person for me to blaze a new trail with. Meghan and I are extremely lucky to have her as a member of the family.

I’d like to thank Meghan Be for everything she has done for the past, the present and future. She gave me the smoothest transition into my next 567. Thank you for everything you have done for Monique and I. For the guidance and the millions of times you’ve told us to “let it go, just be”. We love you for believing in us and being on the front line for what’s to come.

Thank you to the incredible Franklin Liranzo for an awesome photoshoot. Eric Balmir for being so gracious and generous. To all the Balmirians, close friends and family for keeping the secret! Thank you to the company Alt+ (AndrewLee) for the constant work and efforts with my marketing and branding ideas. Diana Osoro and Farrah Benoit for making me sexy (in my costume). Last but not least, thanks to all of you for checking on me to make sure I didn’t quit dancing. For being patient until I stepped on stage again. This ones for you!
