Keesha Beckford

Mother, dance teacher, blogger,

Before her two children re-choreographed her life, Keesha was a professional dancer who performed in the U.S. and in Europe. Today, she teaches modern and jazz dance in the Chicago area. She is also the human cyclone behind the blog Mom’s New Stage, and is also thrilled to be the editor of BonBon Break’s The Attic, where she stores not only her memories, but also those of other talented writers. A multitasker at heart, she shows fierce skills at simultaneously writing, choreographing, checking Facebook and Pinterest updates, playing the role of a mother named Joan ‘Kumbaya’ Crawford and overcooking food. Keesha is one of the select contributing authors of In The Powder Room’s first anthology, You Have Lipstick on Your Teeth. Her writing has been featured on Mamapedia, The Huffington Post and in the bestselling anthology I Just Want to Pee Alone. You can also find her on Twitter.
