AOTA Conference 2015: AOTPAC Talent Show!

So in case you’ve been living under a rock (or holed up studying for finals…same thing) and haven’t heard the news, just a few weeks ago I performed at the 2015 AOTA Conference AOTPAC Talent Show — and I got third place! (Jk, it’s big news to nobody but my parents and my classmates, after one of my professors “outed” me in an email to the class…)

My trophy is at home, but the videos of my performance are now here! I had a great time performing, and it was so much fun to see the talent that all the other students and practitioners brought to the table. It was really a great night, and I truly enjoyed dancing for a cause!

At the show, the captive audience voted with their dollars, putting money in “tip jars” for each performer. The money went to AOTPAC, but all of the cheers and applause went to the performers! I was up against the likes of Bill Wong, a veteran banjo player, and a professional musician, among others — so the stakes were clearly pretty high. But the audience was awesome, and everybody was cheered on whether they were singing, dancing, or doing something else! The winners of the show were this really cool ballroom dancing couple from Texas, and they TOTALLY deserved first place — I wish I had the videos of their performance AND the encore they did after they won!

The talent show was so much fun, and I hope to be able to do it again next year. Enjoy the videos, and make sure to donate to AOTPAC if you like what you see! 🙂

A big THANK YOU goes to my videographer and friend Elizabeth Hart for filming!
