I just led the most amazing crowd if only for a few minutes at a 90’s Throwback event produce by the fabulous DayBreaker. I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into, but what it was, was SUPER positive, supportive, FUN, sweaty, LIT and I hope to get back to it again!
I had a dancer from class join me to help lead the crowd, and though it was a bit of a rocky transition when the music came on, we rocked on like champions!
Later, the mc asked me to join him in a freestyle to Poison (Bel Biv Devoe), and I was just a bit nervous to do so, because suddenly it was just the 2 of us on stage! An unrehearsed performance/freestyle, which has never been my strong suit, and in front of a crowd I did not know, to a song I hadn’t listened to for a while!
All ended well, and the crowd ate us up! I am really hoping for some video footage, and double hoping it looks good!
I gave up 2 classes to be at this event. Something I will rarely do. I happen to have amazing subs, so I was confident to leave my students in their capable hands. It’s important to get the DancePowered name out there, to get the style, the vibe, the energy of the kind of class it is out to as many people as possible. I’m glad I did it. It’s good to get out of your box every now and then. I do not regret it whatsoever!
It’s amazing to see dance continue to blossom in the states, and to have become even more accessible to people who may not dance if it weren’t for dance fitness, Zumba, or DayBreaker’s availability.
This was just one of those experiences that made me realize that dance continues to bring me opportunities, growth, strength, joy, community, power, and confidence. I am so grateful that I overcame my insecurities and fear of failing in front of other people, and pushed myself to become a dancer. It has not failed me.
I cheated and used my class members to send a hello to my pals in Barcelona ; )
Thanksgiving 2016. They were more than happy to accommodate!
We had a great class before noon. It always feels amazing to dance on a holiday!
