All About That Bass….

That song is currently stuck in my head…HELP!

It has been so long since I last did a blog post (opps sorry, I don’t think anyone reads this anyway)
So much has happened since I last posted. I have recently put a big focus into my dancing. I have constantly been thinking now for a while to give dance a go or to just really focus on university and finding a stable job. If you are a dancer, you would know that a career as a dancer is nearly impossible, a lot of rejection and auditions. Life as a dancer (professionally) normally ends at a young age.

I have ultimately decided to do both, focus on university and dance. I know that as a dancer it is near to impossible for me to make it but I shall take up every opportunity I have and just see where it goes. I will not be disappointed if nothing comes of it, but I would be more disappointed in myself for not giving it ago. I live in an area where dance is no more than a recreational hobby for individuals. There is no challenge, which has left me in a position for a few years now where I have become complacent.

As part of growing, learning and pushing myself I will be doing open classes in 2015! I am really looking forward to this. There is nothing like that where I live and is found more in the city (Sydney – a few hours away). I also dance in Sydney and it has really opened my eyes up. It has shown me what we are missing down here.  The culture of dance is very different and so is the environment.

I hope that these open classes make a change also to the dance community down here, become less about individual studios and more harmonious and supportive.!

I did a pre open class before I start the new year and it was amazing to see other students from other studios come together! Not only that i received the nicest feedback from a few of the girls.

The poison of society

This is the strongest poison that does not sting for a minute nor can it be healed over a short period of time.. It is the sweet poison of a person.

We are all unique individuals that offer different qualities to society but sometimes we question who we are as an individual by those who poison our thoughts.

I am fourtunate to live in a country (Australia) known as a multicultural country.. I was brought up on values of equality and equity my whole childhood and along the way did face struggles. In recent events of a video going viral (link below)

It has really gotten me thinking about why people find it necessary to act this way.. Please someone enlighten me!!!! While this video has gone viral it is amazing to read all the comments on social media against the actions of this woman.. It has been brought to the attention of so many individuals and it also shows a sense of community and change within society.. While I do not need people to fight my battles it is good knowing that majority of society will be there to support me.

So You Think You Can Dance Top 20

It is that time of week again where the top 20 dancers of So You Think You Can Dance Australia perform partner pieces choreographed by both international and national choreographers. Tonight dancers were all partnered up with someone from the opposite sex. They were then given a genre of dance to perform. My top picks from the night are:

1.  Dancers: Zoey and Sam
Choreography: Paul Malek
Song: Audra Mae’s ‘forever Young’
Genre: Lyrical

This was an extraordinary piece about a women who loses her daughter and her son who is still alive. ‘Sam’ who danced as the the son had to convey both strength for his mother and grief. ‘Zoey’ was perfection, her emotion and the performance was flawless. Zoey conveyed the loss of a daughter very well. They both danced a very strong routine with an incredible story that moved the audience to tears.

2.Dancers: Patric and Lauren
Choreographer: Chris Scott
Song:Tracy Chapman’s classic ‘Fast Car’
Genre: Hip Hop
This routine had a lot of meaning to the choreographer himself. This meant a lot to him as it was about leaving his father. The background of this piece was that Chris does not come from a wealthy background and that it was a struggle to live the life they had. Chris felt guilty for leaving his father and this routine to him was ‘a love letter’. This piece was perfectly executed and the story was well told. The technique was so beautiful and moments like these just draw you into their world.

3. Dancers: BBoy Blond and Eden
Choreography: Stephen Tannosq
Song:  Lorde’s haunting cover of ‘Everybody wants to rule the world’
Genre: Contemporary Jazz
This was definitely a wonderful piece. The attention to detail of every move with props was amazing. They both gave the dance everything thing they had with wonderful technical aspects to their moves. BBoy Blond was far away from his genre (urban) but managed to do a wonderful job with his partner Eden. It was a very sharp and strong piece of choreography. Very powerful!!!!! Love it!

So You Think You Can Dance Top 20

Tonight was the start of the top 20 performances for SYTYCD Australia. After being given the opportunity to participate with the top 100 and meeting the dancers in a television commercial for the top 100 it was great to see them on stage. It was also great to see Australian choreographers on the show as well as a family friend Tiana Canterbury

There were so many amazing performances though my top pick of the night is……

1.  Song: Young and Beautiful by Lana Del Rey

Choreography:Chris Scott

This piece was definitely number one of the night. It was an emotional and touching piece about struggles of young girls/women being pressured by society/the media to act or look a certain way. It was a strong piece beautifully expressed by the top 10 women and easily connected with the audience as it is an on going issue within society that so many young girls face. It explicitly showed women sticking together and an understanding of what some young teenagers may face. The choreography was very well put together especially with dancers specialising in different genres.
