Today my family celebrates my grandfather, Eichi "Ace" Shibata. After 89 incredible years, he rests with the angels. I miss you already, but I am forever grateful for our time together and for your lessons and spirit. We took this picture at the @pink concert 4 years ago, and tonight I get to perform with her in San Diego on the very fair grounds we used to watch @eshibata7 play soccer together. Tonight's for you, Grandpa! I love you!
HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY to this fierce force!!! @pink wishing you the best...the best laughs, the best adventures, the best exhales, the best moments, the best everything! You deserve the world and I couldn't be more proud to stand with someone who dances through this life with such a powerful voice and open heart. I freaking love you, Mama!
Just finished choreographing 3 numbers in 8 hours with these leading ladies! Was an honor to work with such a powerhouse of fabulous women! Have a great season @knickscitydancers !!! Thank you for having me!
The dust has settled from the crazy VMA weekend, and I am still thinking about this moment.
My dance career has been a special journey for over 10 years, and the @Pink Vanguard performance is going down as one of the most important ones I have ever been a part of. It was a privilege to be on the stage celebrating one of the strongest, most authentic women I know. But beyond that, there was also this magic calm that I had never felt from stage before...it brushed through the room as we ALL embraced each other's hands through the applause. Connection is so necessary, and I am so grateful @pink created a space and opportunity to show the world how easy it can be to make the choice to spread love.
More respect and adoration for @nickandrjofficial @kschaar @silenthouseproductions @thebazhalpin @nolanpdilla- the mastermind creators of it all xx
...We are billions of beautiful hearts and you sold us down the river too far... What About Us
@pink There aren't enough words to express my gratitude for your voice, artistry, and most of all, your humanity. It is an honor to be a part of something that speaks to the questions a lot of us can't seem to find the answers to right now. This is just a part of your magical force that builds every person around you up-to be strong for themselves so we can ultimately be strong together. I am so proud of you. So thankful for you. And I just love you so very much.
And massive love and thanks to @nickandrjofficial and @kschaar for this gorgeous opportunity to live through your movement, to @georgia_hudson for your vision, and to this cast for your infectious spirit. This experience was something truly special.
Thank You! I don't know if it is because I am in a new city under the belly of this mother of a full moon, but you have stirred me up. I usually keep my feelings reserved for my introverted self, but tonight I wish to give you a piece of my gratitude whilst letting go of a few of my insecurities.
You have gifted me more than I could have ever imagined. First, you gave me a family and tribe of friends that inspired roots to grow so deep that I am willing to always jump regardless of my fear of falling. Second, you pushed my heart into a career that fuels my soul yet scares and tests me daily, beyond belief. And now, you have shown me a love where I feel safe and brave enough to tackle anything that comes my way.
It all feels so good and so right in this moment that I can't help but feel like I might not deserve it, or I might lose it, or I might sabotage it. But tonight, I vow to merely let those feelings pass through me. "Poof be gone," a full moon tradition I cherish. Letting go of the hamster wheel thoughts that run through this head...Instead I am going to soak up the light from this place and love every moment of it. I am so grateful. Thank you. Thank you. A million times, Thank you.
I woke up and still can't believe this is real! Yesterday these two boys surprised me with a question and a new piece of jewelry that I will be sporting for forever! David, you are already my person...I can't wait to be your WIFE! I love you for always. 10 ❤️ #fiance
