JAM Joe and Michelle's Dance Podcast

Hey Jam Fam!  We are excited to share today's episode with you, featuring Phil LaDuca!  We know you know the name for being the shoe maker to the stars, but there is so much more to his story.  Thank you Phil for honesty and carving out time for us! Most recognize the name LaDuca as the pinnacle of dance shoes, but before shoes, there was Phil LaDuca, the performer, who went from classical ballet and contemporary dance, onto Broadway as a song and dance man, to ‘hoofing' with the biggest stars onstage, offstage and the big screen. Phil began his early stage career singing in rock bands in Chicago before switching gears to a dance career studying classical ballet with the premier ballet masters, Bentley Stone and Walter Camryn (actually performing in the ballet Romeo and Juliet with the legendary Rudolf Nureyev).  jazz with Lou Conte founder of Hubbard Street Dance Company, and contemporary with the Joel Hall Dancers.  On Broadway he appeared in “Brigadoon” for Agnes DeMille  (alongside Jerry Mitchell), the “Pirates of Penzance” , and was the original understudy for the Gene Kelly role in “Singin' In the Rain” for Twyla Tharp. Phil toured in “Camelot” along with staring on tour in the lead role, of Bill Snipson in “Me and My Girl”.   While in New York Phil first performed with American Dance Machine under the legendary Lee Theodore, working with such greats as Bob Fosse, Jerome Robbins, Ona White, Danny Daniels, Patricia Birch, Anne Reinking, Wayne Cilento and Chita Rivera.Fulfilling another creative side, Phil created the international acclaimed LaDuca Shoes, crowned the “Shoemaker to the Shoes”; designing shoes for the likes of Katy Perry, Meryl Streep, Taylor Swift, Emma Thompson, Hugh Jackman, Catherine Zeta Jones, Lea Salonga, Pink, Shania Twain, Penelope Cruz, Selena Gomez , Christina Aguilera, Harry Connick Jr. and most of the shows on Broadway and tour; Moulin Rouge, The Music Man, Wicked, Book of Mormon, Frozen, Some Like It Hot, The Cher Musical, Bandstand, An American in Paris, Kinky Boots, Matilda, Pippin, Sister Act, Annie, Anastasia, Radio City Christmas Spectacular, Aladdin; TV – Fosse/Verdon, Hairspray Live, So You Think You Can Dance, SMASH; Movies – The Eternals, The Prom, The Greatest Showman, La La Land, Chicago, Burlesque, NINE, Mamma Mia, Julie/Julia, Hail Caesar, working with such stars as Meryl Streep, Catherine Zeta Jones, Liza Minnelli, Cher, Arianna Grande, Antonio Banderas, Bette Midler, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Hudson, Sophia Loren, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Judith Dench, Glen Close, Reba McIntire, Sarah Paulson and Tatum Channing to name a few.Along with being the first, “Shoe commentator' for Miss America in 2015, Phil is most proud of being bestowed a Drama Desk Award 2017 for, “Proving that character comes from the ground up, the designer's innovative flexible dance ensures that hoofers on any stage remain on point”.Mr. LaDuca continues to design but still finds time to teach Master Theatre Jazz Dance classes. “I believe in not only giving back to this great community of dance, but I also feel obligated to ‘pass the baton' to future generations, all the knowledge I was gifted by the greats who taught and influenced me to achieve my goals and dreams”.Thank you for listening Jam Fam!

In this episode, Julie and Savannah chat about one of Savannah's favorite things... the movies! Growing up, many gender diverse folks of the 1970s, 80s, 90s, and the early aughts only found characters similar to themselves on the silver screen. From the crossdressing antics of "Some Like It Hot", "Tootsie", and "Mrs. Doubtfire" to the more serious and irreverent treatments of the gender fluid community with "To Wong Foo...", "Kinky Boots", and "Transamerica", the movies have come a long in their portrayals of the gender fluid experience. Here is a list of trans and gender fluid films through the ages: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_feature_films_with_transgender_characters ------ SAVANNAH HAUK is the author of “Living with Crossdressing: Defining a New Normal” and “Living with Crossdressing: Discovering your True Identity“. While both focus on the male-to-female (mtf) crossdresser, “Defining a New Normal” delves into crossdressing and relationships and “Discovering Your True Identity” looks at the individual crossdressing journey. Her latest achievement is a TEDx Talk entitled "Demystifying the Crossdressing Experience". Savannah is a male-to-female dual-gender crossdresser who is visible in the Upstate of South Carolina, active in local groups and advocating as a public speaker at LGBTQ+ conferences and workshops across the United States. At the moment, Savannah is working on more books, blogs, and projects focused on letting every crossdresser–young and mature–find their own confidence, expression, identity and voice.

F&H is a unique service for transgender women and male-to-female crossdressers that creates customized virtual fashion and style “lookbooks”. Julie intuitively connects with each client to find them appropriate clothes, makeup, hair, and shape wear all in alignment with their budget, body type, authentic style and unique personality.

Why I'll Never Make It - An Actor’s Journey

Play Episode Listen Later Oct 17, 2022 47:07


The life of an actor is often a cross between a seesaw and a rollercoaster. Sometimes it's as simple as an up or down choice between opportunities and trying to find the balance in our life and work. While other times we're just along for the ride (especially when it comes to auditions and callbacks), going in ways we can't control and just doing our best to make the best choices in the moment. And today's guest reminds us how unpredictable that rollercoaster be and that finding balance can oftentimes be difficult.  Ricky Schroeder has been dancing since he was 3 years old and has gone on to do a variety of projects from musicals like Kinky Boots and Hairspray Live to television shows including The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Pose. Now, his name may sound similar to another actor from Silver Spoons and NYPD Blue, but on Twitter he's quick to point out he's not that Ricky Schroder. In fact, he's been working to make his mark as more than just a dancer but rather an all around performer in the areas of acting, singing, and even improv. So this conversation with Ricky will be slightly different from other episodes as it highlights a journey common to all actors, one of hopeful expectation as well disappointing missed opportunities.  The shows we discuss in this episode:  Kinky Boots Once Upon a One More Time (Britney Spears musical) Muriel's Wedding (musical) The Last O.G. (starring Tracy Morgan) POSE (starring Billy Porter) Younger (starring Sutton Foster) Broadway 4D Bye Bye Birdie Live The Last Five Years - available to monthly supporters...become one today :)   Learn more about WINMI Podcast at whyillnevermakeit.com  Please consider a monthly subscription to WINMI and get Bonus Episodes as well OR if you'd rather, you can make a one-time donation to help offset the production costs of this podcast. Whichever way you choose, your support is so very much appreciated!     Career Transition for Dancers Ricky spoke about expanding his own artistic work and efforts beyond dancing because of his love of acting and singing and wanting to be seen as more than just a dancer. While this rings true of many dancers looking to open up more creative and career opportunities for themselves, some are looking beyond dance for other reasons. That's where Career Transition for Dancers (and the Entertainment Community Fund) steps in.  Maybe you're a professional dancer dealing with a career-threatening injury or illness and aren't sure what to do next. Perhaps you feel burnt out in your dance career, wondering if there's anything else you could do for work. You're possibly thinking of starting a family or are simply looking for more financial stability but don't know where to start. Whatever your situation, the Career Transition For Dancers program offers career counseling, educational scholarships and panel discussions to assist you in navigating these choices and expanding new opportunities for your next chapter.      Final Five with Ricky Schroeder  After this main conversation, Ricky sat down to answer the five final questions. Among several topics, he shares why "making it" is an elusive concept and how social media can put undue pressure on some performers. Read it all on the WINMI Blog.

Fall's a busy time over at the North Shore Music Theater, with the new production of "Kinky Boots" about to get underway! Owner Bill Hanney talks with Nichole about the preps for the limited run of the classic show, this year's run of "A Christmas Carol", and how the theater's fighting back against ticket scalpers. We also get a sneak peek at the theater's 2023 lineup! Millions of children around the Commonwealth don't have access to basic hygiene products, like soap, toothpaste, and deodorant. Being without these items can lead them to struggle with confidence and affect their health. Kerry Carter, CEO of Hope and Comfort in Needham, talks about their efforts to get these essential items out to children through youth groups, schools, and other venues. She also explains how inflation is affecting both supply and demand for these items, and how you can help them get these items to children who need them.

“I've always been so viciously, insanely passionate about it (acting). I feel like that is why I was put on this earth…no matter what role, that is where I feel home, and that is where I feel the most powerful.” Jess Val Ortiz found her passion for acting when she was a little girl and knew that's what she wanted to do with her life. She was a musical theater major at Penn State University and is putting her skills to the test by performing in national and regional productions of some of Broadway's most infamous shows, with recent appearances in “Spamilton: An American Parody”, “Drowsy Chaperone”, “Kinky Boots” and “Sister Act”.

In this episode, Julie brings a juicy and scandalous topic to the podcast table, asking Savannah what the difference is between crossdressing as a kink versus as a way of life. After a great diatribe about snoring and a shared love for music--and Savannah's explanation of how DSM-5 defines transvestic disorder--Julie and Savannah get into the nitty gritty of how sensuality is not just a component of the kink scenes but also a normal part of tapping into the divine feminine spirit as a human being. While we can point at others and say that what they are doing must be a kink, unless we have had a conversation or "walked a mile in their shoes", it is only our specific narrow and uninformed moral viewpoints that tell us something is a kink or not. ------ SAVANNAH HAUK is the author of “Living with Crossdressing: Defining a New Normal” and “Living with Crossdressing: Discovering your True Identity“. While both focus on the male-to-female (mtf) crossdresser, “Defining a New Normal” delves into crossdressing and relationships and “Discovering Your True Identity” looks at the individual crossdressing journey. Her latest achievements are two TEDx Talks, one entitled "Demystifying the Crossdressing Experience" and the other "13 Milliseconds: First Impressions of Gender Expression". Savannah is a male-to-female dual-gender crossdresser who is visible in the Upstate of South Carolina, active in local groups and advocating as a public speaker at LGBTQ+ conferences and workshops across the United States. At the moment, Savannah is working on more books, blogs, and projects focused on letting every crossdresser–young and mature–find their own confidence, expression, identity and voice.
