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.

So You Think You Can Dance Top 18

Top performances of Sunday night

Dancers: Ashleigh and Jay
Genre: Lyrical
Music: ‘One’ by Damien Rice
Choreographer: Debbie Ellis

This piece just made me sit in a state of silence. I felt like i was visiting their world of sadness. The dance was about what it is like to nearly loose someone. All those emotions running through your head about the last time you saw them or the last thing you said to them. It was a touching piece with impeccable emotion conveyed through their dancing. This phenomenal dance routine just shows what Australia has to over the dancing world pure perfection.

Dancers:Maddie and Chris
Genre: Contemporary
Music: ‘My Love’ by Sia
Choreographer: Sarah Boulter
This amazing number was about ‘love’. Well i guess we all have our own view of what love really means. Is it the love for the materialistic things? or love for the people around us?. This piece was inspired by Sarah Boulter’s parents who this piece was about. It was about finding your soul mate and knowing that they will be together forever. The love between two individuals is a piece of magic and that is what this dance routine was, just magic!.
