I have something awful to admit. Maybe it’s not a good thing to blog about, but I’m going to put it out there and see what you guys think but I take dance performances for granted. Sure they’re fun to watch, but for the most part, I find myself taking for granted how much incredible work, talent and tears that go into putting together a performance.
Maybe it’s due to the internet and/or television, where auditions, practices and dance numbers are neatly edited into commercial-friendly packages? Maybe it’s due to our multi-tasking world where you can only dedicate enough focus to the bottom line? Whether I blame society, a short attention span or the inter web, it’s too easy to take many things for granted.
Just after one class of Tracie’s Helper Only Performance Choreography, I have realized how much effort it’s going to take to get the task done. While it may seem like a very daunting task scheduling personal practices, sharing videos and performing well during classes, I truly the end result will be fantastic. I also feel grateful that we have a few seasoned dancers who have performed before so that we can procure their advise and support.
Trust me, its a lot of fun too! Not only are we having a pretty good time working on the routine but we’re also getting to see how Tracie has taken the core TDS moves/shines and combined them into turn patterns that are fresh and bold! It’s really exciting as we move forward and pushing ourselves to become better dancers.
While I know there’s still much work to be done, I think it’s exactly what I need at this time to take my dancing to the next level. The best part? Getting better with a great group of people. Looking forward to next week!
