The World Goes On: A Collaboration with country music artist Jamie O’Neal
We are so excited to announce the release of this collaborative project between Larkspur, Jamie O’Neal and college dance teams around the country during this pandemic! Jamie’s song The World Goes On was released at the height of Covid, and it inspired us to create beautiful movement, and to reach out and make connections with other dancers since that was a void in all of our lives due to measures taken to combat the Coronavirus. This talented Grammy nominated artist not only gave us her permission and blessing to utilize her song in this way, but she also talks to us about it and other topics on this podcast episode! Jamie O’Neal’s career has been prolific as a vocalist, songwriter and producer, so I picked her brain about creativity, inspiration, and maintaining a career in the arts. She’s also no stranger to the dance world, and has tremendous respect for what we do as well!

Both Larkspur and Jamie O’Neal are extending a warm and heartfelt invitation to all dancers everywhere to be a part of this collaboration! Kayla and I talk about how you can do just that in the outro of this episode!

Shoutout to our sponsors!
Glam’r Gear: You all have heard Kayla and I go on and on about these bags! They have some really great gear that has been designed especially with the needs of dancers in mind. My team and I utilized our backpacks all summer long while teaching clinics and working on this project. There are so many pockets in all shapes and sizes, which comes in handy for sure! Glam’r Gear is offering a 5% discount on most items if you use the code LARK05! Check them out at glamrgear.com
Apolla Performance: They outfitted us with some great footwear and my team absolutely loved them and use them to teach at their studios all the time. I wore a pair inside my sneakers at every clinic I taught this summer and it really helped! I belong to a choreography and dance teacher network and a teacher nearing the age of 50 was asking for help because she can’t wear the tap and jazz shoes anymore that she used to be able to wear. I was going to recommend Apolla, but about 10 other members beat me to it! Apolla is offering a 5% discount until August 31st with the code LARKSPUR5. Check them out at apollaperformance.com
