What makes it worth it

​It would be an understatement to say that I miss training for my arangetram. But at the same time, it wouldn’t be entirely truthful to say that the process was a bed of roses. To be truthful, it was fun, but hectic at the same time. 
Nowadays, along with my regular training schedule, I generally use my weekends to practice one item from my repertoire. Because of the training I’ve been through, it’s just as rigorous and sweaty, but now it’s stress free.  I guess not having such a big target looming above me 24/7 has done a lot to lessen the pressure. And it reminds me again that dance is more about passion than technique.

Hence, that is what makes it worth it.

Tips for a fabulous photoshoot

dance

  1. Actually get sleep the night before.
  2. Jot down and practice your poses in advance. For like two weeks.
  3.  Look up other dancers and through old pieces for poses which inspire you
  4. Keep water or Gatorade handy. Or whatever energy drink you prefer
  5. Keep all your makeup, jewelry and costumes in one place-  a few days early though. Things will get crazy and it will give you a lot of peace of mind
  6. Don’t be nervous. Have faith in yourself. This is what you’ve trained for.

How’s life?

​Hi Everybody!

It’s been a while since my last How’s Life? post. I hope everyone is doing well and staying super warm during this freezing time of year!
So far, life has been good. Chilly, but good.

As I hope you do too, I still find an important part of myself drawn to dance classes. Henceforth, we’ve been continuing to follow the path towards our annual day, which is coming up soon. So far I’ve done two productions as a part of the troupe, and it is interesting. One thing I’ve noticed is that in this last year, I’ve had to get used to dancing with a group again and memorizing lots of complex formations – stuff you don’t have to do while learning to perform solo.  Both have such different skill sets, that it gets weird having to go back and forth. But it’s still fun, and it makes life exciting.

So that’s how life is …

See you next week!

Happy New Year!

Well, here we are! 2016 has been many things and it’s probably been the most eventful of all of our lives thus far. It’s definitely been huge for me, especially in terms dance! Once again, I want to thank you all so much for your love and support from the very beginning of 2016 to the very end! You all are the best! 

Ergo, farewell 2016 and cheers to a blessed and beautiful 2017! 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!
