Hello sweethearts. I know that I have not blogged in a while. My apologies for that, but I have been busy. Yesterday I attended my studio's sleepover and may I say that I've never had so much fun. We danced around and did some competition team building (that was who it was for, the teams). We got to turn off the lights and just let the spotlights shine and we had a good time. Within this experience I realized that it is always good to really get to know people outside of your personal image of them. A lot of us really had fun and just went crazy living it up! I would like to suggest for some of you who dance to get to know your team mates and have a dance party. Sure, you dance everday with them, or all of the time, but it's different when the lights are off and you blast the music. There are no rules, but to have fun.
                                                                      Don't think, just dance.
Bounce on trampolines, hula hoop, play just dance 2014, eat junk, and fruit, and pizza, dance until it's 2:30 in the morning, don't hold back during your improv or when going across the floor. Just live, werk, own it. Do what you love. Do what makes you feel good. Do what you do when the music is blasting. JUST DANCE!

Dance Spotlight

Well hello my baby dolls. It's been a while, but I have been quite busy. Never the less this is not a normal post this is actually a dance spotlight. This next video is of one talented little dancer Miss. Ava Cota. The dance she performed was truly amazing and deserved the placement it got. My teacher choreographed it and she really out did herself, so here we go.

School, dance, and keeping cool

  Hello angles, today I will be talking about somethings that we all need to discuss.  For most people school has started and for dancers like me, it also means a new dance season.  Usually the first week of school can be torture and hectic, but I'm here to help you the best I can. Now I know about crazy schedules, since mine seems to get crazier every season. With taking more classes, not only is it important to keep up with your training and technical ability,  but also your school work. Making sure you have enough study and homework time is always key. When I come home I don't have much time to get on my mobile device; its only enough for a quick snack and then time to get down to business.
  Some homework takes longer than others, but if your going to be at the studio for more than three hours, it's better to get some work done, versus nothing at all. Now studying can be a little bit harder. Personally I feel that when you study you should spread it out and not just cram it into one session.  If you can try and study a week or more before the exam, test, or quiz. Hopefully you won't be dancing EVERYDAY, so you will have time to study. Sure you won't have that much down time for normal things, but that's what some of us singed up for, right?  In between all the craziness, it's important to stop and breath because believe me when I say, it can get quite over whelming.
  Stay in touch with your goals; if you don't have any, I suggest you make some. You may be wondering what I mean. Well on every school day morning, while getting ready, I listen to Roar by Katy Perry. It makes me feel in charge of my day. Starting the day off right. I also go by lots of quotes. They're great to look back on, to keep you going when things get rough. In all, no matter if you're taking two classes a week or twelve (like me), you always need to stay on top of the ball. In dance, school, and just in life.
Well thats all for now my werkaholics.

Love always, One True Dancer

Dance Spotlight

Ian Eastwood!!!!

To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking.

Hello my cutie pies. Today is the day where I enlighten you all with a quote and this one is by Agnes de Mille. This quote is not only magnificent, but so very true. When you dance, sometimes you take on other characters, most of the time, you are telling a story, and it makes you something else. Something you may or may not be. Yes it is true, we are all beautiful, but sometimes when we dance it's a different type of beauty. It's your elegance and technique that attracts another type of beauty. It makes us larger than life, as it seems. When dancing, some moments we feel as though a strong sense of power has risen in us and it takes over and is displayed when you nail a triple pirouette or land a beautiful grande jatte, for example. It comes with the great pleasures of dance. And as Agnes is saying, it is a glorious and amazing gift that is here on earth. It is yours for the taking, he says. Meaning it's yours, you can take dance and run with it. Take hold of your talent, if you're serious about it, you can go as far as you want. It's all up to you. The sky is the limit my little werkaholics.

Love Always, One True Dancer

Dance Spotlight

This will also be something I do. I'll post some of my favorite dance videos, under Dance Spotlight. So here we go:

Inspiration of the Moment

Hello beautiful dancers and readers. This is my first Inspiration of the moment post. So basically I will be talking about my inspiration of the moment. Today my inspiration is the beautiful Chachi Gonzales, real name Olivia. Chachi is an american hip hop dancer and is apart of I.aM.mE, which won the sixth season of America's Best Dance Crew. I originally heard about her on Tumblr. I searched her up and was in awe. The way she moves is amazing; the skill she has inspired me. I personally feel that even though I am not best at hip- hop that she is a great person to look up to. With in life I feel that having people to look up to is important. Through out your life you will have moments that you look at and think: What should I do? What would my inspiration do? How would they handle the situation? In dance, especially, having an inspiration is key. Being able to copy someone's style is cool, but making it your own is even cooler. Watching someone else kill a performance should only inspire you to get up and kill it, just like them. With Chachi, her style, her swag, is what gets me moving, it makes me wants to grab her energy and style and let it radiate through me while I dance. At the end of the day we're all dancers who love what we do, but it's not too bad to let someone inspire you too. Bye for now my werkaholics.

I do not try to dance better than anyone else. I only try to dance better than myself - Mikhail Baryshnikov

  Dance is a way of life. It brings people joy, light, freedom, pleasure, so much more. To start this as my first post. I decided to enlighten you with a Mikhail Baryshnikov quote. Take about five seconds to meditate on the quote. What does it mean? How does it relate to you, to dance? Well this quote is honestly brilliant. Lots of people think that it's important to always out dance someone, to look better than the person standing next to you. This quote is stating that it's not about that, it's about dancing better than yourself. In dance it's important to move at your own pace, strive to do better. When you dance, you do it for you, not for anyone else. Well that's what it should be about right? Improving and living, werking it, owning it, and killing every step. Dance better than yourself, not anyone else. I promise it'll help. That's all for now my werkaholics.

Love Always, One True Dancer
