Today was a big day for me! I went to a dance audition! I have been a dancer for a long time, but I have not really been dancing lately due to time, money, and a new city. Id say for about a year and a half now, I have been danceless. Its terrible being a dancer and not getting to dance. Its similar to when I go too long with out writing. Everything gets all jumbled up in my head and until I can get the thoughts out and on paper, I cant function correctly. Its the same with dancing for me. It is an outlet, an expression. I love it and I have missed it.
So I did it! I decided I would try out for a Hip Hop crew of sorts, through an amazing studio just over the river! I spent the night before choreographing a solo in my little apartment, and it turned out pretty good. I was a little nervous because it had been so long since I had auditioned for anything! But it went great! It felt wonderful to move and learn new steps. And it even felt good to do a little "performance" once it was time to be judged! And I tried out with the #1! Which was fun, but also meant I had to perform both the group piece and my solo first!!! But it was wonderful. And very awesome!
I am happy/proud to announce that I made it!
