Scores are a mixture of in-studio voting and scores given by students we asked to be Guest Judges for each … Continue reading “Dancing With Our Stars 2018 Recap”

Theater Showcase “Around the World”

Arthur Murray Cranford and Hillsborough celebrated following the final curtain for their annual fundraiser showcase on August 12. This year, owners Danila and Nuria Kartashov supported the Sunshine Kids. The non-profit organization helps children with cancer by providing positive group activities and emotional support. Most students spend months preparing routines. Diane, a newer student at Cranford, said the show exceeded her expectations. “It was far superior than what I had envisioned. So professional. No detail, from costuming, lights, and jewelry was left out.” She felt proud to be a part of the Arthur Murray family’s gesture to help the cause. … Continue reading “Theater Showcase “Around the World””

A Day In The Life: Alexis

A typical weekday starts the night before with a relaxing shower, after which my hair has the whole night to naturally dry in all its thick, curly glory. I wake up at 9am and begin my day with some sort of breakfast; eggs and Taylor ham are usually the go-to. Afterwards I venture back upstairs to begin the ever-wondrous beauty routine. Step 1 includes brushing and blow-drying the mane I call hair. Step 2 entails some sort of hair hot tool. I’ve found that titanium-plated hair straighteners work best on thick or coarse hair. Now, mind you, this entire process … Continue reading “A Day In The Life: Alexis”

A Day In The Life: Keenan

I wake up at 8:00am to a motivational video as my alarm, and head straight to the gym. There, I do 30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of weight lifting and/or plyometric workout. Around 9:00 I head home and eat 3 eggs and half a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. After breakfast, I do everything I need to do to get ready for the day – it usually takes about an hour. Then I have from 10-11 to do whatever I need to get into the right headspace for the day. Sometimes I read, sometimes I play video games, … Continue reading “A Day In The Life: Keenan”

From this meal I get protein and healthy starch that jumpstarts … Continue reading “A Day In The Life: Laura”
