I’m no choreographer…
August 7, 2007
I’m in a pretty weird mood right now and my body hurts. My left foot is throbbing from trying to choreograph and I woke up with a blister there… kinda sucks… maybe I should put more weight on my right when I dance. HAH.
Anyway, Essence is going to Vegas this weekend to teach a workshop. It’s pretty dope. I feel honored, actually… waaaay beyond measure. I’m teaching too, but I’ve been stressing over this for bout a week. I don’t have much experience choreographing. I take enough joy from dancing when I’m learning from others, and I find it damn hard to be on the other side… being a teacher this time… or maybe I’m thinking too hard about it.
So, I’ve been stuck for a good few days on the first freakin eight count of my song, and I can’t seem to move on cuz I’m never satisfied with what I’m doing—never EVER satisfied. Tony Tran gave the best advice. Actually, I heard it from Geo who heard it from Tony Tran, and he said that you just have to accept the move. Like when you’re freestyling, and you don’t like something that you do, you just have to accept it… and believe in it. Then move on. just freakin accept it. I guess I’m trying too hard to impress people. Gigi said, “Just let it go.”
For those non-dancers who might be reading this, I guess I might seem a little funny… for those dancers who are reading this, I probably do seem funny still haha… but damn… choreographing’s so hard! haha.
Ahh well, it’ll be interesting to see what I come up with.
