Big Fish is Casting a New Family Reality Show!

Reality TV is something everyone watches and thinks, "Does the world really need another show about lunch ladies who race chipmunks?!  When the heck are they going to make a show about ME?"

Well, parents, finally someone listened!  Big Fish Entertainment, the television production company behind DC Cupcakes and Black Ink, is interviewing families for a brand new series!

The producers at Big Fish are casting their net all over the U.S. for couples with young children or a new baby who are angling for a home upgrade.  

The ideal family for this project NEEDS to move.  

They feel squeezed into their current space, like someone stuffed into tight pants after an enormous meal.  

Now, not only does this couple hunger for a bigger home, but they want to move closer to family, because being near helpful grandparents, aunts and uncles is a godsend.  

But to which spouse's old stomping ground?  

Big Fish would love to meet couples hashing it out over each partner's hometown, weighing out the good, bad and the ugly, trying to find the balance that would be the sweet spot.  

If this sounds like you and your spouse, Big Fish wants to hear from you today! 

Contact Victoria Ritz at and be sure to include:

  1. your name
  2. contact information (email and phone)
  3. pictures of you and your spouse
  4. a brief description of where you live now and where you want to live soon  

If interested, Big Fish will set up a 45-minute Skype interview with you and your spouse! 

And if a kid-induced home upgrade isn't in your near-future plans, but perfectly describes a friend, neighbor, family member, or co-worker, be sure to let them know!

Have fun and good luck!

10 Ways You Know You're A Veteran Jazz Teacher

You look at yourself doing hip isolations and feel slightly inappropriate.  

When you know the dances the kids are doing these days your students seem genuinely surprised.

You marvel at how they can twerk with energy and passion -- as though their very lives depended on it-- but look like propped up cadavers in modern, ballet and sometimes even jazz class.  

As soon as there's any kind of delay when you're setting up something on the computer, some student rushes over to help because there’s NO WAY someone of your advanced age knows what to do with 21st century technology.

You HATE 90% of current pop music and think it's nasty and just bad. How about some nice, clean Madonna? 

You think about demonstrating switch leaps -- your specialty back in the day -- but fear leaving the studio on a stretcher.

Every now and then, you have a wee bit more empathy for that teacher of yours who showed up for class perfectly lucid but reeking of the sauce.  

Your Come to Jesus chats with your class begin with "You kids today…"

You have to give students nicknames because there's no way in hell you can keep Brittany, Brenna, Britannia and Brianna straight while giving rapid fire corrections.  

When you make a reference to a famous dancer of your day, or anything of your day, the students have no idea what you're talking about.  Who the hell is Barry Snikov anyway?
