I recently got a chance to host an event with the Golden State Warriors.
The event was part of the Warriors “Back-to-School in the Bay” campaign, and in partnership with Kaiser Permanente they hosted the Get Fit Time-Out event at Willie L. Brown Jr. Middle School in San Francisco’s Bayview neighborhood. The event was aimed toward promoting the importance of physical activity, mindfulness and good nutrition.
Golden State Warriors Damian Jones joined us for the fun event and did a Q&A with me to let the kids know about his fitness and eating habits, before interacting with students from the Beacon after school program. Students were then treated to an interactive education session focused on eating nutritious foods, exercising daily and training the mind to be resilient.
There were 3 activity stations, including an instructional basketball clinic, nutrition lesson and mindfulness workshop.
All in all, the events was so much fun and I can’t wait to work with the Dubs again!

It’s a great day for the BAY AREA!!! Congratulations to my hometown Golden State Warriors on a well-deserved 2014-2015 NBA Championship!! I wish I could be there for all the celebrations, but I assure you my spirit certainly is…and I’ll be heading home soon!! DUB NATION, STAND UP AND ENJOY this long awaited victory!!
I was home for the holidays and among the various family and friends outings that we embarked on…it was pretty exciting to attend a Golden State Warriors game with my family, siblings and their “others,” along with my Mom. There’s nothing like being able to support the hometown team, who after years of struggle and not being ranked among the best in the league – are finally back in the hunt! So here are a couple photos we took to mark the occasion!
I spent part of the 2nd day of 2014 at the HEAT vs. Warriors game at American Airlines Arena.
It’s only once a year (NBA season) when my hometown, Bay Area, Golden State Warriors make it to South Florida, and after many years of struggles and heartache for fans, the team is finally competing (and beating) the competition! Plus, I have to make sure to show some “California Love” …so, it was exciting to see the team in action in Miami and to represent & support a team I grew up watching!
DUBS ALL DAY! I also got to sport a custom shirt design by Tony.psd in the Warriors Blue and Yellow – in fact there were lots of Golden State fans in the crowd Thursday night… so that was fun to see too!!
And — post game my friend Maite and I were invited to check out “HYDE” – the ‘exclusive” court side club, which was nice because I hadn’t been down there yet when it was “club” time… and coincidentally I ran into my friend Jenn, who was visiting Miami from the Bay! Good times!
Every year, hundreds of women pour their heart, mind, soul and body’s into auditioning for various Pro Sports Dance and Cheer Teams. I have worn an audition number, stood in line with the masses for my chance to dance, and so I KNOW what the experience is like. Thankfully I have been successful and have reached my goals of being selected for a coveted spot on one of those teams. Now that I’ve hung up my dance shoes, I work as a consultant and regional director for Going Pro Entertainment…and every year the company puts on “dance conventions” all over the country, designed to help audition hopefuls be ready and be their personal best for these once a year NFL, NBA, AFL, etc.. auditions. This year I am again coordinating events in the Bay Area (Northern California) and Miami, FL.
Another GREAT benefit of our workshops is that there are open to current dancers as well. Perhaps you are on a college dance team or semi-pro team that doesn’t have a big budget for choreography, however…by attending our events, you will learn 2 routines and 4 sidelines to take back and use for your own performances, so we encourage teams to send a couple if not all their dancers to be part of this exciting day! And — it’s always a wonderful refresher for alumni who’ve taken time off and want to get back in the groove before auditioning again.
All our events are staffed by former dancers, director and choreographers from Pro Sports Teams and we have the advice, tips and insider info you need to put your best foot forward! Of course we encourage you to always attend the “prep classes” for the specific team that you are interested in being part of, to be audition ready. Going Pro conventions offer that extra “edge” and additional help some of you may seek and it’s another opportunity to meet like-minded women who are also going through the process. Plus, since we are not the actual team reps for specific auditions, it’s no pressure, ask any questions and have fun!
