So what's new in the world of POM you ask?
GROWTH....for sure. This year is the year POM turns 2! We've been fortunate enough to say we haven't had to go through any growing pains (knock on wood) but that doesn't mean we aren't continously striving for the best. This year we are focused on the physical, emotional and mental growth of all of our POM members. We will induct 4 New Empresses into the organization, we've instituted a mentoring program for our youth dancers and our teens aged 13 and older have graduated in new roles, our POM Diamonds. It's going to be an interesting ride folks!
This year existing POM Divas, Tea, OJ, Mirnova and Casandra will join the ranks of the POM Empresses. This year they will be tasked to challenge them selves to be all they can be in the dancer world and that means having to cook more dishes for the POM events. Each of these ladies will stay in study of the art and will be seen a lot more on stage. They were chosen because they have heart! Their dedication, drive, love of dance and sultry sass puts them in a class of their own. We have Mama OJ, who has lived in every borough, has a story about every block in Harlem and can make the most edible soup out of root veggies, tin foil, an old banana and cinnamon! Then there's Casandra whose charisma and charm and her knock your mama's socks off shimmies are too die for. Good as Gold Tea, is sweet, caring and somewhere between 2011 and 2012 found her inner man-eating dance style . Last but not least is Mirnova, she is new to the organization but she took us by storm. Mirnova is Fierce. Capital "F" kind of fierce. Who knew our gentle giant had those killer moves under her Haitian belt!
Next week I'll fill you in on what our Diamonds have been up to but just know they are gearing up for our April 6th event "As the POM Turns (2)" want more info! friend us on FB!!!! The Diamonds will be stepping out in their very own handmade costumes! They have the bandaids to prove it!
