Love is in the Air

With Dancers Abbey & Edward Gonzalez Kay

When and where did you and Edward meet?

We met in Sarasota, FL when we were both dancing for the Sarasota Ballet. Edward joined during my second season with the company.

Where was your first date?

For our first date Edward asked to take me out to dinner for my birthday. We went to a Mexican restaurant and afterwards took a stroll on the beach.

When and where did you get married?

We had a small ceremony in my hometown of Weston, FL on July 1st, 2017.

Where is your favorite place to vacation?

We vacation to Cuba at least once a year to visit family. We usually start in Havana where Edward’s family lives, and then make our way to the beautiful beaches in Varadero, Cuba.

What’s it like working with your spouse?

Some people think it would be difficult to be with your spouse 24/7, at home and in the work place. Edward and I met at work so I guess we are used to it. Sometimes if you are having a hard day it’s nice to have your husband there to give you a hug or a little pep-talk. We also like to watch each other in a class/rehearsal and give each other corrections or helpful tips.

Have you ever danced together?

We don’t dance together often, but there have been a few occasions. This summer we performed an emotional pas de deux choreographed on us by Heather Britt for the Kansas City Dance Festival/Moving Arts Cincinnati. It was a fun experience.
