A New Perspective

hourlives

Looking back, I am so thankful that I pushed all of the hesitation aside and took advantage of the opportunity to choreograph HOUR LIVES. This experience gave me a new perspective of my role as a dancer…

*I realized that the dance is a puzzle and the dancers are the pieces. If one of those pieces are missing, the entire puzzle is incomplete.

*I learned that is very important to “sweat the small stuff.” Little details (like angles and head placement) might seem insignificant, but they glue the entire dance together.

*I found out how crucial communication between the dancers and choreographer is. If there is a problem, it is important to speak up so that it can be corrected as soon as possible. Sometimes, the only way to fix a problem is to change the next sequence of steps, and that is very difficult to do on limited time.

This was definitely not an easy task… There are many moving parts in a dance that all need organization and separate movements, and it was very stressful at times. However, the reward of watching my “vision” come alive was absolutely incredible. This is definitely something that I will consider doing again in the future, and I want to thank all of my dancers for being so understanding with me. You all were amazing, and I couldn’t have wanted for a better group. Thank you!

  1. When I was a young girl my best friend took ballet lessons and she and her family took me to a ballet production once and I fell in love with the whole happenings and wanted so badly to take ballet lessons. But my mother being the person she was who only allowed that which was practical in some way at least by her standard of that idea, said no. And I’ve always regretted that I didn’t have an opportunity to do that. So when you dance Maysa, dance for me too. Love, N 🙂 ❤ xoxoxo
