Since we're all social distancing the internet is one of the places we can go for a little interaction. We've met alot of people over the years via social media but Magic, a 24-year-old dancer and all around delight, may be our favorite so far. Why's that? Because she is from our dreams, as she says. Really though, she's a Vermont girl and we can't get enough of her.
You should make sure to give her a follow over on her Instagram page for some delightful pictures. Seriously. Go. Do it now.
How long have you been dancing?
I started dancing in June of last year at a strip club in Seattle Wa, where I grew up. I have been a studying dance for years though, I started with balet of course and then started Belly dance at 15, including Turkish Uzbek Egyptian, then moved on to modern and hip hop for a few years before I started pole and twerk.
What do you like the most about being on stage and putting yourself out there?
I love feeling the music in every inch of my body, and I love working hard to create a flow that mesmerizes the observer. I want them to be drawn into the now so much that they forget time and space, and are simply focused on the blending of sound and the shapes I create with my body. I think we could all use that right now, a little beautiful distraction amidst the chaos.
Do you have any hobbies that are keeping you busy during this time of social distancing?
I spend a lot of time with my German Shepherd, Ruckus, hiking and spending time outside by a fire in the evenings. I’ve started drawing again, which is truly my first love, using charcoals depicting the figure.
What's one thing you can't live without?
I couldn’t live without two things:
1.) my faith that this time of chaos is temporary
2. ) girl power
Pizza or burgers?
BOTH. And with extra cheese on both.
