As my time at the Citadel Theatre comes to a close, I am becoming reflective and retrospective of the great people I have had the chance to meet and work with. This cast of incredibly talented people made me fall in love with my career that I can easily take for granted.

I am lucky to be able to have the job that I have. I am a dancer and make my living doing such. I get to perform on stage and dance in front of an audience every night. I have the best job ever; and yet, I take that for granted sometimes.

Its not an easy job. There are long rehearsal days that last 10 hours full of non-stop dance routines and singing rehearsals. There are two show days where you are at the theatre for 8 hours and giving 110% for 6 of them to give the best show you can. But the payoff at the end is to hear how much everyone enjoyed the show. The smiles, the applause. Its overwhelming and totally keeps your grounded.

I also get to work with some of the most amazing people in the industry. My boys dressing room is the highlight of my night. The boys are so talented and hilarious to boot. The amount of laughter and jokes we have shared together is something I will remember about this contract for a long time. I have had the chance to make some great friends that I know will be around for years to come and I can only hope our paths will cross in another place sometime soon.

How many of you take your careers for granted? Its easy when it becomes mondane and a part of the everyday. You get up, go to work, punch the clock and call it a day. But this week, take the time to realize how amazing it is that you have the chance to do what you do because you love it. Think about all the great people you get to work with and tell them how much they help you get through your day. A little compliment like that can go a long way.

I am proud now to say that I love what I do and that I have the best job in the world. Don’t you?
