Move Live On Tour “Heaven Sent”-A Denver, Salt Lake City Review
by Voguerista and Hubby
My goodness! Where do I begin? The last week has been incredible and “moving” to say the least. Even now, I can’t believe my husband and I experienced what we did.
As most of you know, we attended the Denver show first. I have no words for how good it was. I’ve seen a number of dance show these last few years including the first “Move” tour, but, this was by far the best dance show I have seen yet and in an element of it’s own.

The choreography of the whole show was masterful, powerful, emotional, and a colorful expression of light. But, a really special highlight of the whole night for me in Denver is that Amy Purdy (who I have been a big fan of since she danced with Derek and hearing her incredible story) was sitting right in front of us about four seats down. It’s funny as I didn’t even notice her until intermission. I looked over to my left kind of scanning things in the theatre, when our eyes met. She was looking right at me (or maybe it was my hair as I was having one of those wild, odd hair days. lol). I was startled for a minute realizing it was her. She was so Continue reading
