Not such a ‘Bad Babysitter’

Princess Superstar

I recently danced for Princess Superstar in Paris. She is charming, exuberant and hilarious! We met at an Olsen House fashion event. She is not only a fantastic DJ selling out houses all over Europe and Asia but also an animal rights activist.

She asked me to team up with her as choreographer and dancer for her performance at Paris Vegan Day. When I first heard her tracks I could not stop pressing repeat and found myself distracted for hours dancing to songs of hers like ‘LICKY‘ and ‘Bad Babysitter.’ I immediately began sharing her music with all of my friends. I love this feeling! Check it out for yourself!

I needed a talented and professional dancer to accompany me so I contacted Bonnie Erickson the Educational Director at Broadway Dance Center. She introduced me to Celine Orang a fellow vegetarian, dancer and owner of Creadanse school in Paris. She and I worked through choreography, rehearsals and costuming for our performance with Princess Superstar, which was a huge success. This year Paris Vegan Day brought in about 5,000 people! Can you imagine how this concert must have gone?

The musicians preceding Princess Superstar were not of the same genre as her, some were groovy and others were hard rock. She was not worried saying, “We’ll get them dancing,” and within 30 seconds this came true. One of my favorite moments was when the song ‘Party People (JUMP)’ was thrown into the mix. She speaks French fluently and rather than screaming jump she yelled “SAUTE,” which most dancers know means JUMP in French. Well I just about lost it. I joined Parisians in the crowd yelling, “Party people wanna SAUTE SAUTE, Party people wanna SAUTE SAUTE!”

We went NON-STOP for an hour when Princess Superstar said that she and her unborn child needed to get to bed. Seriously?! She flew to France, rocked out at Paris Vegan Day, got the crowd partying, and meanwhile she was 4 months along. She has certainly inspired us all. I can’t wait to see more of Princess Superstar in the future.
